vandalized house plants

I had a small 5' x 2' greenhouse that had several of my house plants in it that I was acclimating to a summer outside along with 2 other stands full of plants. My husband and I came home to find my mini greenhouse and racks were pushed over. All my plants were on the ground and their pots were smashed. I replanted everybody in plastic pots I had and now have them crowded into my now 3'x 2' mini greenhouse with the shade cover. All damaged parts are removed and everybody has been watered. I know there's probably not much more I can do but I just wanted to vent.

How heartbreaking, I'm sure it was juvenile delinquents with nothing better to do. I'm still amazed how cruel people can be towards others. I hope your plants survive.

No matter what caused that, it's an extreme bummer! So sad to read what you wrote!

Is it possible the wind knocked these over?

It was sunny and in the 80s with a mild breeze. We left for maybe an hour to pick up a new bed and my yard was the only one damaged. Everybody is doing good aside from a few battle wounds. Couldn't they just stick to egging houses?

Sorry to hear that, I hope everybody survives. Luckily I don't have very many neighbors, but I do have some pretty fearless deer.

Man, that really sucks! You'd probably already considered a gust of wind. Squirrels have torn up a couple of my pots, tossing the plants here'n'there, but that's not in the same league with a whole knocked-over rack.

Did you totally lose anything? Sending good vibes for recovery!!

I think I may have found the culprits. There were some stray cats in my yard earlier when I went out. They took flight over the gate on our patio; right where my greenhouse and racks are. Purpleinopp the good vibes must be working. Nobody has shown any signs of shock.

That is so depressing to have people vandalize houseplants, or any plants! I have had people steal may houseplants but never had vandals do such damage other than picking flowers. I wish all your plants the best luck!

I'm so glad I was wrong, that would have been very bad to worry about them ever coming back. Dang cats !!!! Great job with your good vibes Tiffany, happy for you Susan that they are re-cooping nicely....

Glad the vibes seem to be helping!

Cats, huh? Chasing baby birds maybe? What I feel like saying isn't nice, so censoring myself...
