No pruning needed. To keep it looking full and clean it up you can cut it with a lawnmower set 3 to 4 inches high, or the highest setting you have, once in late winter and once in midsummer

Asian Jasmine is a fast growing and spreading groundcover plant that when planted in contained areas may require pruning in order to keep inbounds. Prune as necessary.

Asian Jasmine can be fertilized with the same type of fertilizer as is typically used for shrubs and trees. Any well-balanced "nursery-type" fertilizer or Shrub & Tree Food will work fine - preferably one containing a "micro-nutrient" package that includes iron, copper, manganese and more. If you want to play it on the safe side, fertilize with a non-burning natural or organic fertilizer suitable for evergreen plants. Always follow instructions on package label for application rates. If foliage turns yellowish green, and there is not a problem with wet soil around the roots, this could be an indicator of iron deficiency. Simply apply a granular or liquid solution of iron to correct the problem. Apply as is indicated on the product label.

The general rule of thumb is to fertilize ornamental groundcover plants after new growth emerges in spring, and again in late summer, if needed. Many groundcovers are fast growers, and therefore will benefit from two or three applications of fertilizer a year.

When groundcover plants cover a very large area, it may be necessary to broadcast fertilizer by hand, casting it as far as is possible. For smaller beds or borders, or when the groundcover planting can be walked through, a hand-held or shoulder-type rotary spreader works fine.

After broadcasting fertilizer over your groundcovers, you should irrigate the plants to wash fertilizer from foliage and prevent any burning that may occur to new growth.

Plant Asian Jasmine in locations that provide well-drained soil and full to to mostly shade. Asian Jasmine is a fast growing groundcover plant that can be spaced up to several feet apart in landscape beds, however closer spacing provides a quicker fill of space.

Before planting Asian Jasmine or other groundcover plants as a groundcover, it might be necessary to do some site preparation. First, you'll need to eliminate any weeds or grasses that are growing in the area. There are many ways to do this however spraying with a weed killer is easiest and most efficient. If you are planting groundcover plants under a tree, and intend to till the soil before planting, be careful not to till to deep and damage tree roots.

Next you'll need to determine how many plants will be required to fill the area. To do so, measure and multiply the length by the width of the planting area to determine total square feet. Then decide how far you want to space you groundcover plants. Depending on how fast you want to the groundcover plants to fill and cover the area, I recommend spacing them about half the distance as their listed, mature width. If the plant is listed to grow 3 feet in width, space 18 to 24 inches apart. Before planting, space all plants out in the planting area, or use marking paint to mark the planting spots. Begin by setting out a row of plants along the edge of the perimeter, making sure to space them at a distance far enough from the edge to allow for future spreading. For example, plants that are spaced 24" apart should be spaced at a distance of 12" from the edge of the bed or surfaced area. After setting out the first row, stagger the plants on the second row, and so on. After all of the plants have been set in place, or marked, you may begin planting. If you mulched the planting area in advance of planting, rake back a small area of the mulch in order to dig planting hole. To plant, dig a hole 2 times as wide, or more, than the container the plant came in. Mix in an organic soil ammendment such as mushroom compost at a 50/50 ratio with the soil removed from the planting hole. Remove the plant from the container and scratch root ball to loosen feeder roots. Place plant in hole making sure that the top edge of the root ball is level or slightly above the level of the ground. Backfill around the rootball with soil mixture tamping lightly as you go to remove air pockets. Water thoroughly and cover with a 1 to 2 inch layer of mulch if you haven't already done so.

You can cut back Asian Jasmine if it looks leggy or cut it away from where you do not want it but generally speaking it needs no pruning
