Moving with Plants
Suggestions and tips:
- Ceramic pots are heavy and easily breakable. Protect your pots and plants by transferring into plastic pots or containers.
- You should do this two or three weeks before moving day.
Killing plant pests:
- Check your plants and their soil for any bugs, mildew, or other kinds of diseases your plants might have.
Pruning larger plants:
- Pruning back your plants makes them more compact for fitting into the back of your car or removal truck and produces bushier more attractive plant.
- If you cant take your plants along for whatever reason you should consider taking cuttings as an option.
Watering your plants:
- One or two nights before removal day, you should water your plants normally. It’s important that you don’t overwater as plants will often grow fungus or freeze during transit as a result of the weather being very hot in summer or very cold in winter if over watered
Plants in transit:
- Be mindful of the temperature that the inside of your car can get on a hot day.
Getting to Your New Home
- Make sure that your plants are the first things you unpack when arriving at your new home.
Plants are usually in a state of shock after moving and will not respond well to direct sunlight, gradually let them become accustomed by giving them indirect light.
