My Night Blooming Jassamine tree is fighting for its life. Leaves are scarse and the ones that exist have holes in them. I have put snail bait around the tree but dont know what else to try. Any suggestions?? Also, it has not flowered since last year.

I have some that are overgrown and others that struggle depending on the location around the house...a few never recovered from pruning after the hurricanes...I bought Bayers 'tree and shrub food' for the ones with trouble and that seems to have helped some. They don't need much water, but I think not getting much-any isn't doing us any favors.

How old is your plant?

P.S. mine are just starting to bud now.

I purchased the home six years ago and the tree was already there. It seems like the problem started right after Wilma with the high winds. The roots all seems in place. I have the Bayers "tree and shrub" I'll try that ...thanks

I have a (when allowed) 8' one next to my driveway. My best results are to cut it back hard after flowering, about 1/2 of the height, throw a little 16-16-16 under it, water and forget it. It is planted next to a very large clump of bananas and gets about 3 hours of sun a day.

Big Island, Hawaii.
