Hi everyone! Please can anyone tell me if it,s possible to replant a fairly large branch of heather thats broken off? It,s such a lovely colour, shame if I can,t save it. cheers: Masie.

Well you could stick in the ground or a pot to give it a try, but its unlikely.

why not try some of the tips as cuttings as it is unlikely to root from a branch.

Yes, take small cuttings about 3 inches long and push them in around the edge of a pot with comopost and added sand. Water and put in a plastic bag. They should root in 3 or 4 weeks.

I don't think the branch will grow but I agree with the above comments - you might like to try the tips as cuttings :)
