My partner delivered a conservatory to a client today and found in his garden 3 very large Cordyline plants that had been cut off from the roots in order to lay the base for the conservatory. The plants were so good looking that he couldn't bear to leave them behind. We have put the plants (with no roots) into buckets of water. Is there any chance of them surviving and shooting from the base?



I wouldn't think so - you'd have been better to just have the roots and a bit of stump, that's more likely to grow than a woody stem with no roots. You never know though...
