I take it you mean the jasmine which has fragrant white flowers any time now? This plant gets 30 feet by about 20 feet - if you've go the space for it, it'd do much better in the ground, and will flower much better too.
I don't know where you live in the UK, but in London, in south facing gardens, the potted version that's sold around Mother's Day time, as a houseplant, survives outside, is smaller and very fragrant, but it is rather more tender than the usual garden variety and does need a sheltered spot. I will shortly be cutting one of these "houseplant" ones back - it's been outside for five years, but again, on a south facing wall in a paved garden. Don't know if any of this helps you though;-)
