Help! I will be moving from Pennsylvania to Georgia in March. What is the best way to move some of my perennials, including roses?

Hi! [wayey]

Hmmm.....I move a lot, and I just dig my stuff up and put it in pots to move.
(But, I just move from one side of town to the other! Not long distance!)
Stuff like my peonies and ornamental grasses, I just dig 'em up, throw 'em in the truck bed, and plant 'em when I get to the other place.

One of the hostesses will probably move this down into a different forum so more will see it. And, someone will tell you the PROPER way! (I don't do much the proper way!) [Big Grin] [Embarrassed]

Welcome to the forum, and nice to meet you!

Buckle up! It makes it harder for the aliens to suck you out of your car!

well, at least it's a good time for digging them up

I'd think they would be okay dug up and just wrapped in newspaper, just keep a root ball around them, bad side is it adds extra weight

When I moved from Indpls to TX.I took some things along.I had 3 up in pots.I used trashbags as pots for the others and lined the box with 2 trashbags(were liqour boxes...sturdy) and set the bagged plants in was able to water them this way.they lived in the boxes about 4 months cause was in travel trailor for 4 months.my banana tree froze and a palm I had froze.but were left out in ice.I had a 3 gallon pot filled with blulbs(iris,lilys,glads,tulips)my tulips& glads have fizzled out due to not enough cold.My iris did fine.gave my mom the crocus on move down as went through TN.my callas that never bloomed for me for 8 yrs up Indpls,bloom just fine in ground here in TX.

Now when I moved 3 hours distance in TX......I loaded the boat and tied my pre formed pond on boat for some wind protection& had others brought down in van in boxes.If we move again......I'll have to use the car hauler& THE BOAT.I think he'd probably just disown me.My fountain takes 4 folks to load and would be a load in itself.

You'll like liveing south.now you'll learn some annuals grow as perienials!
