Transplanting

bunti(7)May 8, 2014

We have put our house on sale. But in my current house I have few fruit plants and flower plants that i have planted them in ground. I want to take them with me to the new house. Can I dig them during summer? What care do I have to take?

We bought land and going to have house build in it. House building is not started. So I am not sure where to plant them on the lot too. I am planning to plant all of them in the ground at one corner. Once the house is built, then I wanted to plant them in the permanent location. I can keep them in the pots, but if we move to apartment, I don't have much space for 100s of pots.

Few pomegranate and jujube plants I have in the ground.
Please advice how to take care of them this summer.

Bunti,

Moving trees to pots during the growing season is challenging due to too much stress on the trees. You can ask the new home owner to let come back during the dormant season to remove some of your favorite trees. If they don't let you then add the price of your trees to the value of the house and buy some new trees at your next location.

Tony.
