I’ve had this Jasminum sambac ‘Grand Duke of Tuscany’ since last year but somehow after a month of planting it, it didn’t grow really well.
After repotting and pruning it, this year I noticed that the plant started to grow bigger.
2 weeks ago it started to bloom.
The flowers are really fragrant.
From what I read, this jasmine plant needs a strong acidic soil. So far I have tried putting coffee ground taken from Starbucks and all kind of organic fertilizers I have.

Jasmine ‘Grand Duke of Tuscany’ (Jasminum sambac)
With a rich, heavenly fragrance, the thick 1″ fully double white blooms emerge on the tips of its upright stems. The carnation-like blooms are much revered throughout Asia where a perfumed drink is made by soaking the flower overnight in water. A slow-growing cultivar that loves a warm, sunny location.
Once my plant is getting bigger and stronger, I will try to propagate using softwood and semi-hardwood cuttings.
