    I too have a confederate jasmine that has two pods still green. Once they turn brown I would like to store for the winter and plant in a large container in the spring. What is the best way to store them until spring?

    I collected a seed pod from a friend’s Butterscotch Jasmine today and I will soak them as instructed today and get them started. I am a crazy seed collector for sure! I love growing everything!

    I have a Jasmine plant and do not know what type however it has some long seed pods (guessing that is called that??) and I would like to know If I can plant these and get another Jasmine or what?

    Hi Isabel
    Generally, Confederate Jasmine is propagated by cuttings not seeds. They may not come true from seed. When the pods dry, they will turn brown and split open exposing fluffy seeds that have fluffy aerials (like dandelions) to help disperse them. To ensure that you don’t loose the seeds when it burst open, place a plastic baggie over the pod.
    With the tail on, soak the seeds for 12 hrs. then plant in a seed starter mix and barely cover with soil. Keep warm and moist, maintaining a bottom temperature of 65-75. Should germinate within 30 days. Let us know your results. I have had good results with plant cuttings.

    start from seed
    What is the purpose of the seed pods on confederate Jasmines. Will they grow if planted?

    Hi Judy
    Generally, Confederate Jasmine is propagated by cuttings not seeds. They may not come true from seed. I don’t have any info on seed propagation for Confederate Jasmine but I would think that it is the same as Mandevilla seeds which you can try.
