 help my dwarf trees that were container planted got broke. 2 were banana trees and I brought them in cause of the freeze. they had nastriums growing n them and the cat kept trying to eat them. so Ihad my oldest sons door closed to keep the cat out. my 4 yr old opened it nd the cat went in to eat the nastriumsand broke my tree away from the roots. they did have a good rooting going and I went to brace my apple dwarf so it would grow straight and I broke it. it also had agood root system. can these be saved. can I get the stick to reroot or the roots to start growing again????? or did I lose $100 worth of trees?

The banana shouldn't have a problem regrowing, although with the weather getting colder I would just store it in a cool dark place so it will go dormant. Once it starts getting warm again it will take off. Just be sure to keep it pretty dry. I'm not sure about the Apple tree. I would assume it will retrieved, but it may take a long time.

On another note, I would not plant anything in the pots with your fruit trees.

Yes I would pull them all out. Fruit trees are big feeders and anything planted with them could be taking vital nutrients from them.
