The Wind over the last few days I have been lucky I have lost only a sunflower how has everybody else done.



My hollyhocks (two clumps) fell over. It's the first time I've ever had to stake them! The flowers in pots look awful - and lots of other plants are lying over diagonally instead of standing tall....:-((((

It has torn to shreds the surfinia petunias in my wall container, but then I am on the third floor, so you can imagine how much stronger the wind is higher off the ground anyway. Also wrecked the Crocosmia Lucifer in the garden downstairs,now its all splayed all over the other plants, and torn the flowering stems off a Phygelius. Otherwise, seems okay, lol!
