I have just bought a Rhodedenron and went to put in a pot when the stem broke away from the base. Is there anything I can do with it now.

I live in London and dont want to plant it in the ground as i am moving next year and want to take it with me.



It sounds as if the rhododendron has been grafted and that the graft has broken. This should not happen. Take it back to the place where you bought it and ask for a replacement.

Many thanks to Bulbaholic and Mookins for repying to my question. Unfortunately I bought the plant at the Kent County Show so am unable to take it back. Such a shame, it was a lovely plant. Novice1
