We came home tonight and something blew over 3 of my biggest trees, right off their rolling dollies, my Arrowroot plant was leaning at 45ยบ, and two or our gutter-covers were blown free. That must have been some kind of wind we had?!

The inflo is safe. But I lost about 10 leaves off the Rainbow Riviera. It was so lush before this! I am going to haev to find a way to anchor the trees to the flower bed seeing how they are a bit top heavy!

A stake through the pot into the ground is good; also, I know people use those document clips to clip plastic pots together in groups.
Glad your inflo is OK!
