If you’re planning for a move, don’t make the mistake of leaving your plants behind. Plants bring liveliness and positivity to your living space. They eventually become an integral part of your family, and therefore, carrying them with you is a necessity.

5 Tips To Relocate Your Plants During House Shifting

When is the right time to move plants?

It is highly advisable to move plants during the early springs and fall when the temperature is not overly warm. Hot summers will worsen the situation and will dry out the plants quickly. If the season is particularly wet, a late spring or summer move may be possible.

How to relocate your plants?

Ensure to get as much root as possible when digging out the plants. More soil will help you to protect the plants during the move. Make plenty of room for the soil and make sure that it is thoroughly moist.

Storage and packaging

Firstly, wrap the clay pots in a damp newspaper and then cover them with dry paper. Secure these layers with tape to keep the sheets intact. While storing them in cardboard boxes, make holes for the plants to breathe in air. If in case of extra-large plants, tie them with a wooden stick so they don’t fall off.

During transportation

If you plan to move plants during the summer, keep them out of the sun and wind. Keep the soil moist and replant as soon as possible when you reach the destination. It is also wise to go ahead and prepare the new planting site/gardening area before you arrive.

Moreover, consider transporting flowers, shrubs, and trees in a closed vehicle such as a truck to avoid wind or heat damage.
