Recent high winds have blown over one of my cordylines (approx 6ft trunk) in a raised bed. I have tied it to a fence for now, but has anyone got any ideas, thoughts on what can be done please?
Someone has suggested planting it deeper?



How heartbreaking for you. You need to stake it, two stakes one either side of the tree and a good distance out. Then fasten planking wrapped in cloth to front and back so it is literally touching the tree at about 3 foot high. Leave in place until the tree is growing away next Spring. Burying more deeply is not advisable.
