Neighbours lodge complaints over overgrown plants

By Bryna Sim

But it's Ms Tan's turn to be unhappy.

She claimed she has been so affected that she could not go to work the past month.

She estimates that the dead plants and flowers were worth about $3,000.

"I took care of them and nurtured them. Things like that, money can't buy," she said.

But following the trimming job, she went promptly to her usual nursery to buy new plants to help her cope with the loss.

Ms Tan intends to restore her garden to its full glory.

In the meantime, she said: "All my dead flowers can be used to make a wreath."
