Camelia

My 4 year old son has just snapped off my new Camelia shrub. The Camelia was only 10" high and now I have 4 or 5" left with a few leaves ! Can it be rescued please? I hate the idea of not being able to save it. Thank you

    Don't you just love 'em image.  Mine broke a valuable vase at that age image  

    With any luck the camellia will behave as if it's been pruned back hard, will send out some new shoots and within a couple of years, maybe less, it'll be as good as new image

    In 12 years time he'll probably park a motor bike next to it, the stand will give way and it'll snap a few more branches off image image
