I need a Garden 12-step sponsor -- help me please!


Ok, I'm coming clean. This is my German Double Pink Brugmansia. (See the unbelievably tall, skinny stalk that goes all the way to the ceiling?)

I know I should cut it down at least some and let it start again at a more reasonable height, but...

...I can't do it.

I just can't.

It will be unstable, I may not be able to get it OUT of the greenhouse, and it might break off in the gusty winds we have out here all the time if I leave it like this.

I know all this.

But I still can't bring myself to cut off this new growth at the top.

I'm just so glad it survived my digging it up and potting it for overwintering in the greenhouse.




It seems so, well ... mean.

So, I need the computer equivalent of a group chant:

Do it, do it, do it, do it!

Won't you help push me over the edge?!
