Helpful Moving Tips: Moving Household Plants

Nothing makes a home feel more welcoming and alive than houseplants. If you are anything like us, your plants are part of the family; a member you can’t part with very easily and need to move with you. Moving By Design can safely help you with moving plants and other specialty items to your new home.

At Moving by Design we understand it can be challenging to move with plants to another home when the time to do so comes right around the corner. Proper packing will ensure they arrive healthy and intact. Be sure to pack them last and unpack them first, so they stay healthy.

Here are some great moving tips for making sure your plants survive the trip to a new home while staying happy and healthy along the way.

  1. Place a plastic bag over the pot and tie it at the base to keep the soil contained.
  2. Tape the bottom of the box well, then place the plant inside.
  3. Fill in extra space with packing paper or newspaper, so it’s secure but can also breathe.
  4. Poke holes in the box to allow for air flow. A few holes on each side will be adequate.
  5. Label the box “LIVE PLANT” and/or “FRAGILE”
