Moving: How to handle my perennials?
I'm moving to a new home in a couple of weeks and planning on taking what I can with me.
My problem is that I don't know what to do with my perennials. The backyard has two large trees, so I need to spend time figuring out where my best spots are before just planting things.
I don't really want to just dig a haphazard flower bed somewhere, then have to move everything when I figure out where I want to put in beds. (Or do I?)
Is there a way to hold things until I'm ready to plant? Say, perhaps in some trash cans with soil or containers?
Here are the things I'm moving:
--Various spring bulbs: daffodils, tulips, etc.
--Several types of Asian lilies that have been crowded for a couple of years.
--Large lavender plant (several years old, also crowded)
--Some peony chunks to start new ones
--Unknown things (lol...I'm better now about marking plants)
--A big old chive plant
--My delicate clematis
--Some day lilies are mixed in with things, so they'll go too (I like day lilies...these are just the orange ones, we call them flags)
They are all moving to a better home, and I know more now so can plant in better spots with less crowding. (And better sun!)
Oh, and my beloved Goat's Beard. This is my favorite plant.
Ideas? Options? I've never done this before and don't have any idea what I'm doing. But I can't leave my friends behind.
