OH NO! Riana, so sad you had to take out the 30 yr old lilac that was about to bloom! Hope you are able to save the 6 shrubs. Are you able to save any of the veggie garden?

Unfortuneatly, we're " ungardening " again :-(( The huge 30 yr old lilac , just about to bloom, was chopped to 18". The veggie garden burried under a ton of sand & bolders. And the big willow bush next to deck is gone. But they WERE able to save the deck by digging under from both sides. The one front garden will be drastically altered, but not completely destroyed. I will be trying my best to save 6 mature shrubs after they're dug out . Foundation waterproofing HAS to be done, though...our basement got wet from seepage this year.

oh, carla, my mil has hi iscus in her yard in yakima. we're at 800 ft above sea level & she's 1300 ft ..and her hibiscus survive every winters freeze. even the horrible nearly three months of continuous snow on ground and ground here freezes to about a foot down. so yours may get some kill back, but i bet the roots are fine ..and you may get a great deal on freeze damamged hibiscus at the nursery :)).

   ....ddh tells people i by 'dead' plants and give them nice burials in my yard. for which i am rewarded w very pretty survivors every year! :))
