Forum home The potting shed

Am I a saddo?

We are always looking for the next big move and are going to view a house this week. 

Without even seeing it yet so don't even know if it will be the one I am getting emotional about what plants I can take! Think I'm just tired image

When we do move I know I can take all my garden furniture and pots 

Could I take my garden arch? And wrought iron border edges?

how many plants do you think I could realistically take out of the borders without having to mention to new owners I want them!

sorry this could be months away or even couple of years but playing on my mind and only you lovely gardeners will know how I feel image

    I depends on the reason for moving.  Do you have to?  If you fall in love with the house (and it may have a lovely garden already) you can always arrange to take your arch and border edges.  You have to let buyers know what you intend. On the other hand your buyers may have been swayed by your lovely garden as it is.  Dilemasimage.  

    You can pre-plan by taking cuttings of your favourites and saving seeds from others. They will have a head start when and if the move takes place.  Don't get stressed yet. Plenty of time to make decisionsimage

    You can take anything out of the garden as long as  the buyers know what is or isn't included in the sale before they sign the contract.

    I know that when my next door neighbour dies, the wood will be sold,we will lose all the wildlife, and about 50 houses put on it as it is designated building land. At that point I will sell up as well and look for a new place. My neighbour was born in 1919.....

    I know I should be taking cuttings etc, but there comes a point at which I think, where on earth am I going to put it all? I moved into this place with a huge pantechnicon load of stuff. I will need at least 2 , one just for garden stuff.
