HOW TO RELOCATE PLANTS SAFELY AND EFFICIENTLY

Plenty of people have an array of gorgeous flowers and plants around their house – whether it’s the garden or even in the home. If you’re one of those people – you’re probably dismayed to see all of your favorite plant go. Much effort is spent in growing a garden and making sure it stays healthy every-day. Many plants can be moved to a new location, but they have to be relocated safely and correctly.

When to Move Plants

If you’ve spent time growing a garden and you have gained experience, there’s a good chance you know when and when not to attempt a relocation for your plants. But, to familiarize yourself – here’s what you need to know about the right time for moving plants. Shrubs or trees should be moved during the winter, and if you’ve experienced a wet season – opt for a late spring or summer move.

How to Relocate Plants

Get as much of the root from the plants as possible when you’re digging them out. The soil protects the plants, so you want to ensure you have as much as needed. Place the plants in pots and give them plenty of room. Make sure the soil is moist enough – and wrap the roots of large plants in burlap.

Transporting Plants

If you decide to move plants during the summer, make sure you keep them out of the sun and wind. The roots need to be kept moist. You want to replant as soon as possible, so you should go ahead and have a planting site ready before your arrival. If you decide to move the plants during the fall or winter, relocating the plants won’t be as vital – but, of course, the sooner the better. A suggestion is to relocate flowers, shrubs and trees in a closed vehicle, such as a truck, to avoid the damage from the wind. If you’re traveling quite a distance – make sure you check the moisture levels of the plants during your stops.

Take Great Care of your Plants

If you’ve followed or at least taken heed of these steps and advice, there’s no doubt that you’re already taking great care of your plants. But there’s more to be done. Pay attention to them carefully and ensure they’re moved successfully. Once you arrive at your destination, check the plants for any damage. Cut off broken leaves or branches, and use a good pair of garden pruners. Make sure the plants are relocated to the new home or apartment as soon as possible.

Moving in Thornhill plants to a new location requires even more care. Be sure to give them plenty of water and understand that a move during the summer will probably cause them to wilt. If you’re able to – protect these transplants from the sun as they mature. Consider adding mulch – this will attain more moisture. Give your plants plenty of time to become well accustomed to their home – and of course, you as well. Pay attention to these tips and advice – and you’ll walk into a new garden or display of beauty in no time!
