After some tree surgery today my currant bushes have been damaged. One appears to be ok, the other one has had a lot of damage to it (a tree trunk fell on it), I think it will probably survive but some branches snapped off. I have since stripped the lower leaves and dipped them in some rooting powder and planted the in pots. They are quite new branches as its only really taken off this year. Is it possible that they will become new bushes from these impromptu cuttings?

they should be ok as long as you keep them well watered while they root , they take really easily from cuttings . am sure the damaged bush will recover too!
