Jasmine

The jasmine plant I planted last summer has hardly grown. Is this normal? It's in my front yard facing west. It's surrounded by African daisies which by the way, are doing very well. I live in Pacifica CA where it's often cold and foggy although this winter the weather has been stupendous. Could my proximity to the ocean (less than a mile) be a factor? I am thinking of getting another jasmine plant and planting it next to it. Would this be a good idea? Thanks in advance! GFC

Hi CFG,
There is a saying when it comes to perennial plants: "The first yea they sleep, the second year they creep and the third year they leap." You don't say which jasmine you have and many are vines. When it come to vines, they can sleep for 3 to 5 years or more before they put o any substantial growth, depending on which vine it is. It takes a lo of time to establish a strong and large enough root system to suppor all that top growth.
Another thought that comes to mind is that you aren't in a tropica environment and most plants slow down in the fall until spring come around.
