Moving with plants- Needing advice

janinecollette(6 NJ)November 10, 2008

HI all.. I need your help! I just found out that we need to relocate for my fiancéÂs job and I am in frantic panic! We live in NJ and we need to move out of current house by December 4th. WeÂll be in a temporary home (still in NJ) for about a month or so until we find our new house. Does anyone have an suggestions for bringing some of the following plants with me since they wonÂt be able to be in a permanent location right away?

Irises - arilbred, Siberian and Japanese

Hostas

Tulips  since I will just dig up the bulbs Âdo you think itÂs ok if they sit in a brown bag for a month or so?? IÂm sure IÂd need to get them in by January.

Lilies

Clematis

Daylilies

Astromelia

Creeping jenny

Sedum

Campula

Any help is GREATLY appreciated!! THANKS!

Pot them up and keep roots damp, but not soggy. Heel containers in the ground to reduce root freezing. Mulch well when you plant them in their new home.
