How does your Garden Grow? My Trees were Stolen :(

How does your Garden Grow suggys.co.ukLeanne

So your probably wondering why I’m showing you a photo that is suppose to be “How does your garden Grow” well i did have some little green fern looking trees here… Which proudly sat there for almost 3 years.

Roll on Saturday the 5th of April whilst watching Ant and Dec on Saturday night TV, someone decided to come up the shared path between us and our next door neighbour and rip out all 3 of my beautiful Trees. 🙁 I only realised at 10pm when i went upstairs to get my Pyjamas on and i just happened to look outside and Notice they were gone!

I feel so disgusted and angry that someone could just casually come along in total daylight and steal my Trees that i worked very, VERY hard to get them to grow.. (if you have seen my other garden posts then you will know I’m not the most green fingered type of person! haha)…

Trees Covered in snow

Here is a picture of My trees from winter 2012, so this is when there were only still babies… There had grew HUGE about 3ft each and its such a shame that i don’t have a recent photo of them, as i was very proud, they were so lush green and i had trimmed them into a lovely cone shape with the pointy bit at the top…

But they gone 🙁 and i feel robbed, intact i feel like my garden has been robbed from having something nice that took pride of place… But they gone. It makes me even more mad that they were only £2.50 each from Morrisons, so there weren’t the most expensive of greenery, there were cheap and cheerful.

I went to Morrisons on Sunday and i bought another 3 of the exact same. My idea behind it was to re-plant those in where the others had been taken to show that thief that, yes they took those trees… but ill just plant some more, and that there not going to make my garden look awful so theirs can look great!!!

    Oh my goodness, how awful is that. I can’t believe anyone would do that. Maybe you could use some garden twine to attach them to the fence so that no one can try again. How terrible that I have to even suggest this though.

    OMG.. thats. Are you going to be okay in your house? What are you doing to protect yourselves? I am so worried about you now. Yesterday the council installed massive street cameras here cuz i live near the pubs. I feel safer for that. Hugs for the stolen trees. Thats so weird! Who steal trees???? #HDYGG

    Oh my goodness, that’s so horrible 🙁

    We recently had someone stealing crops from our allotment. I was cross but then felt sad that someone might genuinely need the food that much that they’d be prepared to steal it. Then I realised that they’d stolen tools from sheds too and I lost my sympathy…

        When I lived on a mobile home estate for some reason there were lots of gnomes. One night someone went around and collected them all, and left them as if in a queue lining up outside the estate office 🙂

    I can’t believe someone took your plants. I can’t hep wonder why on earth someone would do it, just to be mean or to take them for themselves. Horrid. I hope your new ones grow well for you.

    OMG your poor trees, such a petty thing to do and steal some gorgeous little trees like that. Well done for rising above it, buying some more and replanting them from where they disappeared. I hope it doesn’t happen again!
