porch fun

last night i went out to have a smoke on my front porch.  when i went back inside, i sat on the couch and went back to watching my show.  a few minutes later, the front wall of my aprtment started to shake, and i thought someone was trying to get in the front door.  the dogs were barking like mad, so i went to investigate...  and the awning over my front door had fallen.  it crushed most of my plants, and the nice (expensive) pots I just put them all in, and freaked me out since i was just standing there a few minutes before.

so.  who knows how to save crushed plants?

holy crap, that sucks!!!
i'm not the planting expert, but i imagine that if the roots are intact, you could just replant them and they will grow back to their beautiful state.

Yikes, that's freaky.

I can't help you with the plants since all the ones I've been given have apparently died despite my direction following. -_-

I have no suggestions for your plants (ever noticed how I don't have any?), but just wanted to say "Yikes!"

I have a bunch of pots if you need them. The arnt nice being the cheap black nursury pots mostly but the plants will grow in them.

Replant the plants like there were new from the store. Do it in the evening when its cooler, make sure the get plenty of water and sun. Remove any flowers or buds so the plant doesnt waste energy on them while repairing itself. If they are anuuals just pitch em and get new ones they will die soon anyway.
