Click Here for the Often Forgotten Moving Checklist – for Plants June 15th, 2017 | Posted in General Real Estate, Other Interests, Real Estate

We’re on day three of sharing checklists exclusive for your seller clients who are moving. We’re shared checklists with tips for helping your kids and pets with a move. Today, plants will get a little TLC with this moving checklist.

It might be Aunt Wilma’s treasured Christmas cactus that was passed on when she passed on or just a beautiful, flourishing ivy that someone has nurtured from a tiny stem. Whatever the case, this checklist should help sellers in thinking through the move with their plants in mind, too.

 

It is best for the plants if you can transport them in the car. Here are some suggestions for moving your plants.

1. Three weeks before you move, prune back your plants to make them hardier and less bulky for the trip.

2. Two weeks before moving, place your plants in a plastic bag with a pest/bug strip or pest control powder. Close the bag and place in a cool area overnight. This will kill any pests on the plants or in the soil.

3. The day before your move, place plants in the travel containers. Cardboard boxes are preferable. Secure the plants by packing dampened newspaper or dampened packing paper around the base of the plants and soil. Use more paper to cushion the leaves and place a final layer of wet paper on top of the plants to keep them moist.

4. On moving day, set the boxes aside so that the moving company does not load them onto the moving van.

5. On moving day, close up the boxes and punch air holes in the top. Load them into your car.

6. While the plants are in the car, take care not to leave the plants to extreme heat or cold.

7. Unpack the plants as soon as you arrive. Remove the plants from the bottom of the box in order to avoid breaking the stems.

8. Gradually expose plants to sunlight to reduce shock.

9. If you leave your plants behind, take cuttings. Put the cuttings into a plastic bag with wet paper towels wrapped around the cuttings.

10. Do not take items that were included in the sale!
