Yesterday's gale, now being called The Storm With No Name, hit us hard here in Devon. Our boundary fence started collapsing in several places, and worse than that, a timber arch collapsed completely, along with several.plants that had been twining up it for years. A climbing hydrangea snapped right through the stem as it fell, while a well establised clematis and a passion flower have had to be chopped right back.
One reason we had so much damage is that the wind was from the northwest, which is quite an unusual direction. It's really sad to lose plants that simply can't be directly replaced.
I'm not looking for a solution, just sympathy! Did anyone else suffer garden damage yerterday?
