Help! I've accidently stripped the bark and 'outer core' off my virginia creeper
main stem. Its still quite young and the stem is approximately a thumb thick. Can I save it somehow?



I don't know if you can save it, but at least they're very cheap in supermarkets. I've bought one this year in The Range and one last year in Morrison's. Keep your eyes open for a bargain if it does succumb.

Chop it down past the damaged point - these'll regrow having been cut to the ground, usually.
