OK to prune Jasmine in fall after summer outdoors?

Posted by lightning96 4b (My Page) on

I have a jasmine sambac that's been outside for the summer, and it bloomed well while outside. Now there are no blooms on it, I've brought it indoors for the winter. Is there any harm in pruning it back now? It's a little large & lanky and I'd like to fit it in my space a little better during the winter. Is pruning in fall as the days are getting shorter generally a problem?
thanks for any input.

I always cut mine way back before bringing them inside and they've never been harmed by it. It helps to develop a nice bushy compact shape come next year as well. You might also want to spray the leaves with insecticidal soap to get rid of any spider mites or other nasties that can play havoc on plants inside during the winter.
