I have a Pseudopanax ferox and a Pseudopanax crassifolius(a) growinh happily in my back garden but I am moving and I'd like to take them with me. Both are about 12 feet high and the ferox is just beginning to change into it's mature leaves. Is there any hope of successfully moving these tees to the new home or am I better hoping the new owners don'tthink they are too weird and get the saw out. Please help!!
Once sale agreed you cannot dig up half the plants.
Best to tell buyers that you plan on moving some plants.
Would be very sad if new people just dug them out./felled them
Go for it...try to move them...with as huge a root ball as you can.
Nothing to lose.
You could explain to them how very special these plants are and you are afraid moving them now will kill them.
(You could start now by cutting a circle round then. but leaving them in situ.
Try asking to see if you could collect them later in the year.
