Moving box

United States Us

I have 4 box shrubs about 16" that I would like to transfer into stone urns as we are planning at move at the end of March and I want to take them - can anyone give me advice on potting them?

On plant Buxus sempervirens



These plants are tough so they won't need much special treatment. If they are already in pots they should transplant into your urns no problem. If they are in the ground I would be tempted to dig them up now with a substantial rootball and pot them into plastic pots (do this when there is no frost). Once they are potted they should have settled down by March as they won't be actively growing until warmer weather is here. Good luck.
