I shall be moving house in a couple of months and have a number of plants and shrubs in pots that I'lll be taking with me. In particular I have about 20 Acers (Japanese Maples) in pots. They're of varying ages and sizes ... from 18 inches to 5 feet.
How should I prepare them for the journey? I'll be using a removal firm (not spoken to one yet). I was thinking of putting the pots in bin bags and securing them to the trunk to keep any ants contained(!). Should I wrap the foliage in fleece or something similar to protect the branches?
Can anyone offer any suggestions please.
