It’s been a year since I built the fence and since it hasn’t fallen over (yet) I felt it was time to move on to the next phase. Da little women has always planned for an arbor, so time to get started.
A well established Bougainvillea (AKA – Pole N Kill Ya”) has been transplanted. You can see a white/orange pipe at the ground level. This is a 3 – 4 foot piece of PVC whick I drilled many holes into for watering. This has worked well over the years to water and establish new plantings. I simply connect it to a garden hose and turn the water on slow to allow it to trickle in.
Pam has had this plant for about 10 years. So…. the transplant was a tad of a shock to it’s system. Two weeks after its’ tranplant, It has dropped all of its’ leaves (as expected.) Nnow the questions is, will it take hold and come back. Lord willing, I’ll update these photos next year. At that time you will see a thriving Boougainvillea or something entirely different.
