Question of the Week

We are moving at the end of August. But the grape tomatoes are looking REALLY good, the eggplant is flowering, and I’m missing my veggie garden already. Can I dig the plants up and transplant them to our new house? There is also a small pussy willow bush with sentimental value; the original I rooted it from was at the house where my husband grew up. Can I transplant it? It isn’t very big, really (the size of a rose bush) – and I might have tried moving it anyway if we were staying. Get the answer »
