How To Move Plants

Tips for keeping plants healthy while traveling...

  • Load plants as close to your departure time as possible. Avoid putting them in the trunk of your car; heat, cold, and lack of fresh air can be harmful.
  • In warm weather, stop periodically in shaded areas and crack a window. Avoid exposing plants to direct sunlight at any time.
  • Keep a comfortable temperature in your car. Cold weather, especially, can be hazardous to your plants. If needed, help protect plants by wrapping them with newspaper or paper bags.
  • Water your plants only if they seem unusually dry. Otherwise, wait until you have arrived at your new home.
  • If you travel for more than three days, bring plants indoors when you lodge and open cartons to expose them to light.

Bringing your plants safely into your new home...

  • Unpack your plants as soon as possible.
  • Remove them through the bottom of the box to avoid breaking leaves and branches.
  • Refrain from moving plants around until they become acclimated.
