Dahlia - wind damaged - help please!

Hi, I am hoping to get advice re my damaged Dahlia. I was so proud of my Dahlia which was growing profusely and smothered in buds. Woke up this morning to find the pot has been blown over and 1 of the stems completely severed. Is it possible to salvage something? I am a complete novice in terms of gardening and have no idea about taking cuttings.  Any advice would be much appreciated. Many thanks.

    Sorry, nothing you can do with that stem, except stick it in a vase.

    Hopefully the rest of the plant should be fine.
