The jasmine plants that are growing in the yard have many long branches. If I was to trim them back what time of the year is the best time to do this? And does it matter where on the stalk this is done (in front of new growth/shot)?

You can trim your jasmine anytime during the spring or summer. Pruning will usually encourage healthy new growth and lots of new flowers. Prune back to wherever you'd like to see two new stems develop. For the health of your plant, try not to remove more than one-third of the live growth during any pruning session. Best wishes with your garden!
