This past Monday I got a nice phone call stating that we won the bid on a new (new to us) home. I wanted more acres but will settle for the 3.63 and a beautiful home.

Thumb of 2016-08-03/PlantMania/f68587

So we have one or two plants that we are taking (OK more like over 150 or 250 plants) . 15 of our Plumeria's are planted in our current front yard. Should we up-root and place in containers and re-plant next year, or up-root and re-plant in ground at the new place (until mid Oct)? I am worried that any movement in August is going to wreak havoc on the little guys but there is no way that any are being left behind.

Is that your new home? Nice! And a workshop to boot!
I am not one to answer your plumeria transplanting questions but I hope you get to take all with you that you desire! Congratulations! Hurray!

Congratulations!

I would pot them up (assuming you will store them for the winter normally anyway) and replant in the spring.

And clip off the majority of the leaves before you dig them up.

Stewart, think of it the same way as if you were shipping rooted plants. I would remove the majority of the large, mature leaves, but leave the medium size and of course those small, terminal ones. If you are going to put them in the ground at your new home, I see no reason not to put those back into the ground. If you have to bring them in, pot them. Some of those leaves you leave will still yellow and drop, but some will survive. Heck, I have even started leaving some medium size leaves on when bag rooting. You would be surprised at how many remain while that cutting is being rooted.

Today we have been at our new home for 7 days! Due to a family of deer we have moved all Plumerias to the front porch until I find some time to fence off the back yard.

When we moved the plants, we cut off a good amount of leaves from the ones that were planted and everyone seems to be liking their new home. Thanks for the suggestions.

Do deer eat the plumeria leaves, Stewart? We have deer that travel through the back yard and in all the years (20) I have never seen a single plumeria damaged by them. I now have approximately 100 potted plumeria plants and all are in the back yard.

I have read in different areas that deer will munch on the leaves, but will leave them alone once they get the sap. (I read it on the internet so it must be true!) Big Grin

I have not seen it for myself, but really do not want to test the theory that they will leave them alone. I would hate to end up with a deer in the freezer that has a black eye.

We are planning to run some type of fencing anyways as we are going to get things ready for 2017 spring garden - I just assume that we will make it larger so we can get all of our plants in the area to "try" to keep them safe from the deer, coons, armadillos, etc.

Thanks

The "you're all moved in" statement is a a huge wish. Whistling

When we moved we put all the furniture in the house and left all the boxes in the garage. Took me three days to find my CPAP machine! I still have about twenty boxes that I need to get out of there and then maybe I can start putting my garage to use.

I will probably post a layout of the land and ask for assistance and guidance in the Texas Gardening area. Anyone have any good ideas on landscaping software? I want to map out my entire yard and use it to it's best abilities.
