Fothergilla Broken Branch
I bought a dwarf fothergilla this summer so it is about 2ft and turning some colors for fall. My 5 year old accidently stepped on it which made "time stand still" for me as I imagined the worst. There was one broken branch on the ground and another in tact but slightly broke in the middle. I know buds for the spring set now. With that said, should I just cut off the branch or will it kind of heal itself? As for the branch that fell off completely, I assume sticking it in the ground back into its center like a forsythia wouldn't help. Does this plant fill out fast in the spring? Sorry for the odd questions but I am quite frustrated.
