That is why most of my plants have conduit poles that support them and the major branches. Cuts down on the losses. good to hear your voice KB. Bill

Welcome back to the forum. The winds blew pretty good out here in the San Gabriel Valley. A few of my plants toppled over. I was fortunate that there was no damage. My plants are getting ready for the winter, leaves turning yellow and falling off.
Hope you find a solution to save that 6 footer. Good luck!
