Starting A New Garden By Using Clippings And Trimmings From Your Old One

If you are going to be moving from one house to another one, you may be unsure of how to continue cultivating your garden at your new home. Maybe you have spent a lot of time and effort to get your current garden to the place it is at today, yet you need to move to a new home for your career. Whatever the reason for your move, there are definitely ways that you can recreate your current garden at your new living space. Follow the tips in this guide to learn how to use the trimmings and clippings from your old garden to create a new one.

First, Determine If You Can Move Each Plant

Some of your plants might just be too difficult to try and uproot and harvest somewhere else. You might be moving to a different climate, or the plant may just be too sensitive for a move.

Choosing Which Plants To Move

If you have a big garden with a large array of plants, you might just not be able to move everything, for practical reasons. Here are the best reasons for making the decision to move a specific plant from your old home to your new one:

  • The plant easily grows from seeds or leftover cuttings.
  • The plant forms in a clump or produces runners with its own roots. This will allow you to dig up just part of the plant to be moved.
  • Any plant that is irreplaceable to you for personal reasons, or any plant that was grown with the purpose of trying to sell the house.

Cuttings From Perennials

Read on further to learn how to effectively move your perennial plants, as these are the easiest kinds of plants to move.

  • Cut the stem from the bottom, leaving a 4 to 6-inch length.
  • Dip the bottom into a rooting hormone to help speed the process along.
  • Put the bottom cutting into a small plastic nursery container. Make sure there is potting soil in it as well.
  • Place the pot into a clear plastic bag.
  • Try your best to keep the cutting in the bag near some sort of natural light source. This will help stimulate healthy growth of the plant.
  • Once the cutting begins to form new, fresh roots, you may take it out of the bag and carefully plant it into your new garden, greenhouse, or planter.
Some Possible Preparation

This may not be an option for everybody reading this article, but if you are able to do so, it would be wise and beneficial to set up a temporary nursery at your new location in advance, before you move your cuttings and plants. This will ensure that your plants will be unearthed for the shortest possible amount of time, therefore increasing the success rate chances of your cuttings being able to grow in new soil. Be sure to make this temporary nursery air, in the shade, and as cool as possible.
