Gee, I'm actually starting to feel sorry for the Left.
They just lost ONE of their HUNDREDS of propaganda
platforms, giving the Right an advantage of ONE.

The windstorms we get here in the foothills is nasty!
Came home from work last night and no power again (geez, we really need a whole house generator), and mother Nature took out my wisteria arbors...the roots are pretty badly damaged this time...so looks like I have some surgery to do and will try to propagate the cuttings for new plants.

That sucks. Is it fixable?

The arbors need some TLC, the wisteria is toast, but a gardening expert said we can try to salvage the mother trunk and try to train it into a tree.  That way it won't need support. Since the previous owner planted it, we believe it's only about 7 years old, so young enough to train.

The plant is not dead...they have a good root system.

The whole base trunk was laid over.  I cut it within 2 feet of the ground to untwist everything, what a nightmare.  The roots are very loose, but the mother trunk is indeed intact, whereas I thought the tap root was broken.  But one of the gardening gurus in my group said try to save it and train as a tree species, so we're going to leave it in place and see if we can make it happen.
