The shade cloth must have gotten way hot. 30 daylillys, 14 lantana, 5 lace cap hydrangeas, 3 knock out roses, and one muhley grass aren't usable. I can salvage them and use them at another job in a few weeks but not Tomorrow and no where near to get them. I'm beginning to think I should have kept my full time job. I didn't consider myself a newbie but I am certainly making all of the stupid mistakes that they do.

Ahhhh, the trappings of landscaping. Everyone thinks there is more money in it, and that might be true, but Murphy's law generally rules and that will kill production and profits.

Chin up, it's all a learning experience. I still make mistakes and have thought like you. All you can do is power through and stay positive.
