Grumbling I came home early this morning and found my 4 ft pudica had been run over my DH. He is bad at backing up and well. The pudica has been in place, the very same place for 4 years. Suddenly it's in his way? He just got home and told me he didn't see a 5 ft plumeria Riviera Rainbow blown over and ran over that one, too. I am sad and without words. The driveway is the only place with enough sun for my plumies. It is a double-car lane. The trees have always been placed there for many years. I just don't understand. Sad

Are you going to be able to salvage those two trees or at least take several viable cuttings and root them?

Of course I can fix the trees. I am heartsick about it but I know how to help them through this. I am an optimistic person, usually able to make lemonade out of lemons. But sometimes, because DH didn't know how much they mean to me Confused emotions overshadow practicality. Will I be able to bring the tress back to good health? Probably. Am I lucky it wasn't one of my taller trees? Yes. Am I glad they are my fast-growing strong varieties? Very much so. Will I forget that DH never said he was sorry, and showed no remorse for destroying my hard work to getting my trees to where they are/were? I hope so.

I am so sorry, Cheryl. You husband might be a terrible driver but he could at least show some concern for the damage to the trees. He needs a good talking to. Sticking tongue out Is there anything you can erect that would help prevent this in the future?

Hope he didn't knock out any inflo, plumerias are very forgiving plants if well established and well rooted. Hope the bounce back fast.
