Relocating to a new place doesn’t mean you have to say farewell to your garden. There are a number of ways you can prepare to carry your garden with you. Whether they are potted plants or they are planted in the ground. Your favorite perennials and hydrangeas will continue being a part of your garden. In this article, we share with you tips on how to make that move as seamless as possible.
- Prepare where every plant is going to go. This means tilling the land and digging holes for the plants, ready to transfer immediately or knowing where the pots are going to be placed. Wherever the location is for your garden, be sure to have it ready to avoid any delays that may lead to the stunted growth of your flowers.
- Choose the Right Pot. If you frequently move your large plants in the house where you take it outside and move it back in the house, it would be best to choose an appropriate pot. This will require you to choose a plastic pot because of the weight. Ceramic pots are beautiful but are very heavy and a lot of moving can lead to breakage and even damaging of the floors. Whichever pots you have, ensure that they are handled with care to avoid any damages
- Prepare Your Plant for the Move. Moving a plant indoors protects it from cold, heat, and many pests—unless you bring those pests inside with you. Before you move your plant indoors, inspect it for signs of pests and disease and spray it down with a hose to eradicate any opportunistic insects. Depending on the plant and time of year, this might also be a good time to do a little pruning, dead-heading, or other maintenance that would create a mess indoors.
- Time your watering. Large plants are heavy. It will weigh even more when it is wet. If you know you are going to have to move your plant soon, hold off on watering for as long as you can without damaging the plant. This will make it lighter and easier to move than a plant with saturated soil.
- Protect Yourself and the Plant. Some plants need protection and support while they are moved, while others may require us to wear protection during handling.Some plants have fragile leaves and branches, or branches that are heavily armed with thorns, spines, or sharp leaves. The last thing you need to worry about as you haul a large plant around is hurting either you or the plant.Wrapping your plant is also a great way to reduce its size and make moving it easier.
- Practice patience. After the transit, you will note that the plant’s leaves might turn yellow. This is no need for alarm, this reaction is often a temporary protection instrument and it doesn’t take long until your plants start glowing again.
