I Am Moving And Want To Take My Bulbs And Herbs With Me. Can I? - Knowledgebase Question

Good Afternoon-

I am moving in May. I have a well established herb and canna bed which I would like to take with me. Can I?

In the canna bed, I have canna and wild amarillos bulbs which are begining to emerge. I thought I heard somewhere that storing bulbs in vermiculite was helpful for long term storage?

In the herb bed I have Fr. Tarragon, mint, horehound, sage, tymne, Rs. sage. and others. Most are possibly too large; some have off shouts which I think I could transplant into pots until the move is completed. When should I transplant and how large should the pot be in respect to the plant? Is this even possible?

for a longer time, you might try digging and potting them very early in the season so they have some time to adjust to those conditions as they kick into growth for the season. This also gives you more leeway for your replanting schedule. Once you replant, treat them as you would any newly planted plants with plenty of water until they are reestablished.

Good luck with the move!
