Can I fix kale?
« on: May 31, 2012, 17:52 »
THis afternoon Mr Raven is out, to help him I bought in his kale plants as it looks like rain.

Remember me sun scorching the tomatoes?  well, this time I have dropped one of them and it landed upside down.  It has roughly an inch of stem with some leaves at the top. 

It has bent where the two parts meet.  My question is:  Can I fix it?
The glass is neither half empty or half full - it is simply the incorrect size! Find a new glass!

bent or snapped ? - if it is still joined to the plant it should recover on it own!

Thank you Matt.

It is bent and still attached but not sure by how much.  I shall leave it for a couple of days in the hope it gets better, I think it has gone too far tho!!

you never know, just give it a good watering and it may make a full recovery

a similar thing happened with the main stem of one of my french climbing beans and I just positioned it so that the bent bit was fully supported and it has now recovered about 2 days later
some people are like slinkys......they're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face as you push them down the stairs!!

Kale grows like a weed Raven, and I suggest that you've just given it a headache!

Shouldn't worry about it; I planted ours out last week, and they just shot away, they also looked as though they'd been dropped from a great height, trampled on, and very, very tired!

Thanks Starry and Growster.

I shall nurture it for a few days before I totally give up on it.  Think I'll leave all the plant care to Mr Raven from now on!

EDIT: I have just checked and it seems to be standing up again.  STill a bit bent but looks like it will survive.  Thank you all!  :D
