taking out a Jasmine plant

I have a 4 year old Jasmine plant that was growing on my pergola/decking that I have thinned back but now I find I need to move it entirely as it is in the line of build of the conservatory I am having instead of the decking.  Am I best to cut it right back to the base and dig out the root to re-plant?  Try to dig out the root with 'runners' still on it - it is quite big.  Or should I just give up and buy a new one I have to have a Jasmine plant because my granddaughter is called Jasmine and it was planted for her and with her when she was 4 years old.

    IF YOU CAN GET A PIECE OF ROOT WITH A FEW SHOOTS GROWING OFF IT THAT WILL BE FINE. CUT THE SHOOTS DOWN TO ABOUT SIX INCHES OR SO AND POT IT UP. IT SHOULD GROW ON QUITE HAPPILY UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO FIND IT A PERMANENT HOME.

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.

    Thanks Pansyface I will try that.  I was so sad to have to move it as it has taken the 4 years to get to something like how I wanted it.  Not to worry it can be a new lease of life for it - hopefully :0)
