Houseplants are an absolute joy to watch growing across the home - but they can quickly become a big worry when we move!
Knowing how to move your houseplants to their new home without causing them too much stress or damage is essential. With that in mind, here are some seriously helpful tips for moving home with houseplants!
Whether you’re setting up removals North London or elsewhere, it’s important to ensure you time your plant watering right around the big day. Contrary to belief, when it comes to moving day, it is best to leave plant watering for when you get to your destination.
Not only will this help plants acclimate to their new home, it will also ensure that you are not travelling with any excess moisture. As ridiculous as that may seem, even having a few wet plants can cause serious aggravation en route - do you really want wet soil getting everywhere?
No one wants to carry dead leaves around, and neither should you! Dead leaves can flake and crumble and get everywhere if you let them.
A new home is a chance for a new start, so bring in the move with live and healthy plants and leave the dead leaves behind you - what’s more, do you seriously want to have to worry about plant health when you’re supposed to be settling in?
This one is for the bigger plants. While you can invest in holders or even keep your smaller plants with you in the car, chances are that your bigger plants will be travelling alone with the rest of your boxed items.
Invest in a fleece material or bubble wrap to avoid causing distress to the plants (and to yourself!). Even using old coats or duvets tied around the plants will do, but remember to use ones that you don’t mind getting dirty.
As long as there is a thick layer to protect the plants, you’re good to go. Remember to let our team know about any particularly sensitive plants and flowers you’d like us to move, too - marking your items clearly is a must, but clear communication is a must from the get-go!
Once you arrive at your new home, you’re going to want to unpack your plants as a priority. Get them into your property as soon as possible, in the perfect spot for their needs (plenty of sunlight, shade, etc.).
Ideally, you should leave any freshly positioned plants to settle for a few days in their perfect spots, even if it is not where you would like them to be. The move - believe it or not - may have stressed out your greenery!
