Please Help! Husband chopped it!
I finally finished crying, and hope this is the right place to get some information to keep me calm.
I recently bought a house that came with at 10+ year old Hibiscus Tree, that was too big for the previous owners to take with them.
They left me all the instructions and fetalizer id need for the next 10+ year of care for this tree.
Needless to say this is not a small bush.. its a TREE!
Was a tree... *sad face*
I came home from work and discovered to my pure horror, my husband had decided to let more light in by cutting off branches.. hes not a plant person.. and if i could show you all what he did you would see why i cried.
the tree is now missing about 75% of its former branches and what it looks like now.. makes me very sad to look at.
I am hoping that someone here can tell me what i can do to promote it to grow branches.. it use to be 18 feet tall and about 2 meters of branches reaching out nicely from its center now its .. a mess.
its just a big sad mess that makes me upset when i look at it.. because it was the center piece of this house, and now its ugly beyond all else.
its lope sided.. the tops been all hacked out.. should i bother? should i just put it out of its misery?
really looking for some help here.. i love this tree.. im devastated by why has happened to it.. i need to find out if i can somehow promote growth and restore it its former beauty.
