snow has split my callistemon bottle brush major branches - can it be repaired?

On plant Callistemon citrinus



Depends how long they've been broken for - immediate binding with bandage, old tights or something, tightly round the broken parts to join them together again, probably with a stick incorporated to support the branch upright, does work if done very quickly after the injury. Worth a try anyway.

Gaffer tape works, as well. Good luck!
You'll need three hands for this job to get the branches tightly bound up and 'splinted'..
