How much should I cut my Jasminum nudiflorum back once it’s finished flowering? Should it be pruned right after flowering? Does it need fertilizer?

‘Winter Jasmine’ (Jasminum nudiflorum) flowers on older growth but also produces a lot of new growth.

Pruning should be done right after flowering in spring, cutting flowering stems back to two or three buds on the main stem. Remove any weak or crossing stems at ground level. Feeding jasmine can be done simply with a layer of compost mulch and a granular fertilizer as directed on the package.
