When it comes to moving, we not only be talking about taking all the objects inside the home, but also the transfer of the plants in the garden. There are several factors to take into account when moving outdoor plants: the station, the type of soil and the size of the new space.
We will choose autumn and winter for the transfer of the plants. This is the period known as latency, when the plant takes a break to continue growing during the rest of the year.
Type of soil
You have to be very clear about what type of soil is waiting for the plants in the new destination. It does not make sense to move them to a place where they do not resist replanting.
Size of the new space
It will be necessary to plan the space of the new garden and where the plants will be placed. Tips for moving garden plants
How to carry out the transfer of the plants during the removals? We will follow these tips:
- Two months before, we will prune the climbing plants. We will take cuttings from our favorite plants and replant the plants with a good compost that will provide nutrients that strengthen them for the trip.
- When the move nears, we will leave the plants properly transplanted in pots in a dry place with clean leaves.
- For large plants, we will remove them from the ground and wrap their roots in plastic, making sure they are moist.
- During the removals, we will cover the plants with opaque plastics. If cardboard boxes are going to be used, we will introduce moist newspapers to fix the pots and we will puncture the boxes so that the air enters.
To avoid any setback in moving the plants, it is best to hire the services of a professional. Lidon Removals and Storage are specialized in national and international removals with a safe and reliable service.
