First off, I do not have a green thumb. You may say I have a black thumb actually. But I found jasmine growing wild near my house and I want to plant it in my mum’s garden because she loves it. So I went down to take a look and it’s all twisted up in other bushes etc because it’s a creeper and I couldnt find it’s roots. So what do i do? How do I take a clipping and keep it alive and manage to plant it elsewhere. If I DO find it’s roots somewhere how do I keep the thing alive?
I am so bad at this. HELP!

Im not a gardener but my WHOLE fam is. My mom has 23 gardens and a big part of the towns garden club.
I know there is stuff you can get to take clippings and dip in stuff and it will start to get roots (in a vase with water) then you plant it
Or dig a BIG circle around it and you can cut off most of the stuff that is tangled up and it wont hurt the plant. And then with your hands gently shake out the extra dirt.

Rooting solution will only be successful when used on roots, tubers(raspberries, lilacs,) and new growth (still green, early spring growth).
Do a little internet digging to see if rooting solution on a jasmine cutting will work. I am not familiar with jasmine (as it is not native to my climate) so I am unsure of how viable a cutting taking root is, even with rooting solution.
Even if you were to remove the roots, you have to be sure to keep them intact. Even if you are able to remove the entire root ball, transplanting is usually a 50/50 situation.
