Urgent Help - Mexican Palm blown over

That's what I thought - I think that if the plant is healthy it will put out some new roots to replace any that have snapped.  You just need to keep it propped up until the roots grow and it has firmed up.  That may take a while. 

Of course, if there is a drainage problem the roots may be rotting off down below and it might be an idea to take this opportunity to dig the container up, improve the drainage and repot in fresh compost  - possibly JI3 with added horticultural grit. 

What do others think?

Such a pretty rose with lovely foliage - I've been growing it in different gardens for 30 years and have never ever known it to get any disease  - it flowers non stop and is a lovely cut flower too.

Hi LisaGirly

Just to clarify ... are you saying that the tree has blown over and the roots are still in the ground and therefore a lot of the roots have snapped?

Dog wee and my lawn

Hi Rainbow

If your garden isn't big enough to devote a special area for your dogs, then I'd go with an artificial lawn http://www.forevergreenlawns.co.uk/artificial-grass-for-pets/   (Other suppliers are available  )

I never thought I'd hear myself saying that, but in your case I think it's the best solution
