Are you excited about moving home but nervous about turning over a new leaf when it comes to your garden?
If you're a green thumb, you’re probably going to find it hard to say goodbye to some of your favourite plants. Before you start digging, learn how to avoid killing them in the process with these dos and don’ts for moving plants.
When moving plants, DO:
Specify any plants that you intend to move in your sale contract. If you’re renting, make sure that you don’t take any plants with you that belong to the house, and avoid confusion by outlining in the entry and exit condition reports what was in the garden before and after you moved.
Relocate plants to areas with conditions similar to where they used to live, taking into account hours of sunlight, exposure to wind and proximity to pools or grey water run off. Unlike boxes, plants can't wait to be unpacked!
When moving plants, DON’T:
Prune off dead branches of excess growth right before the move. Doing this can cause your plants to go into shock. If you want to make your plants lighter and less bulky for the move, prune a few weeks before you take them out of the ground, so they have time to recover.
