We moved into our house 5 years ago, and about 3 years ago I started pulling up grass and making gardens. I now have 7 gardens and today will be finishing creating the 8th (we have a nice chunk of property). Anyway, I LOVE to garden, but we recently discussed moving in a few years- same town, but better part/bigger house. Ever since we decided that we might be moving, I've lost a bit of interest in spending yet MORE money on the gardens. As you all know, it can be pricey, especially with perennials, which I try to get so that I have to spend less each year.
Here's my question. Have any of you ever moved an taken any plants with you? I'm not talking about ripping out our plum trees and larger shrubs, but I have a few favorites and the thought of starting from scratch is making me a bit crazy. I actually love the thought of a clean slate since I love creating gardens, but the thought of spending thousands of dollars to do so makes me wonder if it's too obnxious, or even possible to grab a few plants when we move (depending on time of year, of course).
Just wondering if any of you have ever taken any plants with you when you moved.
