Is Relocation the reason you aren’t Gardening?
Is it your Work that makes you relocate often? Or may be it is your studies? Or may be it is just you! We all relocate for many a reasons. But all I want to tell you is don’t let the relocation ruin your Garden plans! It is feasible to move your garden to your new home but you may not want to do so for many reasons like:
- You don’t know if the new home has enough space for all your plants
- You’re not sure if you can dedicate the time and effort that the garden requires since a new place comes with its new set of demands
- You’re not sure about the climatic conditions of the new place
- You believe that – It is best to have local(indigenous/native) plants.
To put it briefly, you’re expecting to move to a new place in another 3 to 12 months. Hence you’re not willing to start a Garden at your current place. Here are a few things you can definitely try:
Option #1: Rent a plant
There are many plant libraries, which function just like book libraries. You can rent a plant (or few plants) for a week to a month depending on your subscription and preference.
Option #2: Go for Annuals
An annual plant is a plant that completes its life cycle, from germination to the production of seed, within one year, and then dies. Summer annuals sprout, flower, produce seed, and die, during the warmer months of the year. Winter annuals germinate in autumn or winter, live through the winter, then bloom in winter or spring. ( Source – Wikipedia)
In short, go for short-lived plants. These plants live only for 4-12 months. Hence are desirable as they would fade out naturally by the time you have to relocate.
Option #3 Go for Grow Bags
Grow bags cost less than half the cost of pots/planters/containers. They are very light weight which makes them easy to carry. On relocation, you can easily fold your grow bags, put them in carry bag and take them along. So they are Cheap, light-weight and flexible. Since they are cheap, you also have an option to dispose them off!! Click on the image to know more.
Option #4: Grow Your Own Food
Almost all the vegetables are annuals. And by vegetables, I also mean all those fruit plants which are commonly considered as vegetables. So whether it is gourds, beans, peppers, peas or lettuce; they are all annuals. And the list is never ending. It is also a great idea to have an herb garden since herbs mostly fall into annual category.
