How do I transport plants? I’m about move a large hedge from one side of the garden to the other as we are getting a fence built. They are such lovely plants it seems a shame to toss them and buy more. Any tips on what I can do to make sure they survive the move? I’ve never actually done this before. Thanks

  • First step would be to well water the ground you are removing them from. The wet earth makes it easier to dig any plant out with minimal root breakage

  • Really interesting comments read on this!

  • big root ball, wet hessian, lots of watering in, and a little seasol and chook poop too

  • prepare them first by feeding them up on seasol
