mel -- I haven't had much luck with night jasmine but a friend of mine recently told me WHY this could be...

One - I always thought night jasmine was a type of jasmine.. but it's not! It's actually in the nightshade family. And what do I know about nightshade? Sooo.. She told me not to prune it all the way back but just do 'shaping' trims now and then -- particularly of any upward twining stems. THEN to get it to bloom.. Leave it alone! If you happen to be fertilizing -- stop. Apparently this is one of those plants that prefers downright crappy soil to bloom. Aha! In a nutshell - this is one of those plants you can love to death... so love it from a distance and leave it alone some.
If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men. -- St. Francis of Assisi
