Moving a garden
Well I'm going to be moving at the end of the month and I'm debating on if I can move my garden or not. I currently grow Japanese cucumbers, Garlic Chives, Basil and Sugar Baby Watermelons. It's not a huge garden but I grow mostly items that are pretty pricey in the grocery stores but easy to grow. Well my garden is producing wonderfully this year with little to no assistance from me and since I'm moving I want to take it with me. I was thinking that items like the Basil plants and garlic chives will be fairly easy to move. They are hardy plants that do ok with transplanting but I'm worried about the watermelon and cucumbers. The cucumbers are growing on a support but I think I can gently remove them from the support and the watermelon are just on the ground. So here is what I'm thinking. I'm going to try and dig up the plants and pot them for the trip over to where I'm moving. I'm thinking if I fill up a pot as much as I can with soil, then dig around the plant deep enough I can dig up the plant with minimum damage to the roots. I will then place them on top of the soil in the pot, water and move. When I get to the new place, I'll move them again with all the soil around them into a new garden. What do you guys think?
