Q.Can My Large Golden Barrel Cactus Ba Moved Bare Root?
I have some huge golden barrel cacti that are over 40 years old. I need to sell or give them away. They are in pots but weigh a ton. I recently found a new home for one at a botanical garden. i need to get it there but worry about damaging it by trying to take the pot it\\\’s in to as the edges of the plant may be cut by the pot as it rides in a truck…can I take the soil off and wrap the roots in burlap? We have to hoist it with a block and tackle to transplant these heavey cacti… I have six of them started from seed.
