Two trees down in my yard.... need advice

bmmalone(7)October 27, 2008

With all the windy weather this past week or so, the neighbor behind my house had half of a poplar tree break off and land in my yard last week. The morning, the neighbor to my right has a dead 90' tree fall into my yard, taking most of a couple of large oak trees I had with it. That part of my yard, which was mostly shade, has now become full sun! I am just glad that no one was hurt and apart from a couple of fences no serious damage was done and no one was hurt. My question is, the plants that were in the shade bed will not survive in full sun. Do I need to move what's left of them now, or can I wait till spring?

What is planted there now that you are considering having to move?

If these are plants that go dormant like hostas, ferns and such, I'd wait until spring.

I'm sorry to hear about that, especially since some live trees were affected! But I hope you will enjoy the new sunnier areas come spring.

I'd wait until spring. Sounds like it was under decidous trees anyway, so you should be OK.
I never moved my shade plants and never watered them...many have survived this summer without any leaf covering! I think you'll be OK.
