If you pruned your shrubs back hard they may take some time to recover, especially if you pruned them back to bare wood. As long as you see new growth, there's hope that the shrubs will recover. There's not much to you can to speed up the growth. As soon as it can, your jasmine will develop new growth and flowers. When pruning jasmine it is best to prune a little at a time and never take more than one third of the growth off in any one year. Just be patient with your jasmine. I'm sure it will come back soon.
