Tips and Tricks


1. Plants should be moved in a personal vehicle.

Typically, plants should not be put in the moving truck.  They are dirty and can contain insects.  If you must put plants on the truck, make sure they are kept separate. Pots should be wrapped to keep all of the dirt from spilling during the trip. Each plant should be padded as well as possible so they don't slide and placed at the back of the truck so they are the first thing off.
