Helping to make your life stress free, ab fab – good move.
For a lot of people, house plants are extremely important, so moving plants with you to a new home can be a worrying experience. If you’re careful, your plants will be fine, so keep the following tips in mind to make sure all your plants survive the move.
Check regulations if moving interstate.If you’re moving interstate, check the state guidelines for plants that are permitted, as some plants are not allowed to be taken across certain state or territory borders. You’re better off finding out now that your plant can’t come so you can find it a good home, rather than having to throw it in the bin at the border.
Re-pot into plastic pots.Where at all possible, it’s a good idea to transplant your plants into plastic pots that are less likely to break. If you do this a week or so before the move, your plant will have a chance to adjust in time for the move. Wrap up the breakable pots separately and be sure you remember which plant goes in which pots for when you replant them.
Check with movers.If you’re moving within state borders, most removalists will take plants, though some don’t, so be sure you check with yours well before moving day so you can make alternate arrangements if you need to.
Prune.Moving can be a stressful experience for your plants, so before moving day, spend some time pruning them so they have a little extra energy for dealing with the move. Pruning at least a week before the move will allow your plant to be ready for the big day.
