Packing and moving all your possessions may include your plants. If you are particularly attached to your plants or have worked hard to grow and cultivate your greenery, you don’t have to leave your beloved plants behind.
- Potted plants will be the easiest to move.
- If you are moving to a different state or country, you may not be able to bring your plants with you. Check out your new country’s or state’s laws and regulations to see what you can bring.
- The closer your new home, the easier it will be to include plants in your move.
- If at all possible it may be easier to move your plants a few days before or after your big moving day.
- If you have many plants, make one separate trip with all the plants.
- You can move plants you currently have in the ground by transferring them to plastic containers a few days or weeks before the move.
- Keep a close eye on your plants after transplanting them, the new soil and climate conditions may mean your plants might need more water, less sun, etc.
- For transportation purposes it may be easiest to wrap your plants in plastic or put a tarp down in the trunk or back of your car.
- If you are moving farther away or are unable to take your plants with you to your new home, see if a neighbor or the new homeowners would appreciate your plants.
