Transporting Plants

Whether bringing a new plant home from the nursery or moving to a new home with your plants, transporting plants can be tricky. Think of your plant much as you would an animal. Never leave a plant in your vehicle for too long, especially during the summer. Other tips include to steady plants so that they won't fall over, and cover soil so it won't spill. Protect them from wind burn by transporting them in a covered vehicle, not a truck bed.
