When cutting some broken branches I caused a bark wound on the stem of my daphne. How do I be sure that the plant survives the winter. How do I protect the exposed stem? Thanks!!

This will, usually, heal its self with no issue. If you still would like to be sure, then this article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/propagation/grafting/reattaching-broken-stems.htm

If it does not survive, then you can always resort to restorative pruning. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/winter-daphne/pruning-winter-daphne.htm
