Q.Moving plants from one part of the garden to another

Zone NG2 4NB | helenkalmar added on July 15, 2019 | Answered

I am renting a property with a front and back garden which is a mess. I decided to tackle the back garden that has a square patch where fruits and vegetables are growing and the rest is ivy and just a mess.

There is a bayleaf tree, wild artichoke, raspberry bush and lemon plant growing, all together and all a mess.

My question is can I dig them up and replant them elsewhere?

I would consult your lease agreement first. Many times, moving plants around the yard, or killing established greenery will violate an agreement, and we can't help break the law.

Otherwise, if everything is in order, and you have permission to do so...
