Broke Off At Soil Level

One of my young Fuchsia's was broken off at soil level - I think when my dogs were playing & might have hit it. Will it come back from the roots? Or should I get a replacement?

RE: Broke Off At Soil Level

Hi Peg,
There's every chance that it will re-shoot from the roots or a piece of stem that may be left. If it is in the ground, I would be inclined to put it in a pot, trim back some of the root growth, and keep the medium just moist. Place the pot some where sheltered, perhaps with glass cover or plastic bag over the plant, which will help re-growth. Then keep your fingers crossed!
It's just happened to one of my plants and the new leaves started to show in about a week
Good luck, IanS
