This group of large, old, Lagerstroemia indica, shaded by large Magnolia grandiflora, were virtually dead, showing no leafs, no flowers.
After a careful preparation, they were all transplanted to a sunny spot, near the entrance of the Polidora B&B.
Weighting about 2.5 T, it was not a joke to carry them around the garden, but the transplant was a huge success: they all survived, and flowered the very first summer in the new home.
Most of the old Lagerstroemia indica in the garden were suffering.
It was decided to transplant them where they had more light and air.
Here Alessio and Dr. Riva are visiting the patient.
It was no picnic though, to move them around the garden: each tree was about 2.5 Tons.
The year after they all had leafs and flowers.
