I'll be moving from mid TN to SW Oregon in about 3-4 weeks. I'd like to take some of my plants, flowers and tree starts with me and have them survive the move. We'll be driving and the trip will last about 3-7 days depending on how much sightseeing we do. I'd like to take some azelas, crepe myrtle, hydragena, lilac, snowball and rose of sharon starts along with hostas, iries and hyacinths. Need to know how to propagate and pack them for the move so they'll survive. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I used to live in Eugene - now I'm in Molalla/Silverton area. You'll LOVE it there. Eugene is such an awesome town. I miss it very much and don't get to visit as often as I'd like. :waa:

My husband and I moved from IL to OR and it was the best thing we ever did! Good luck on your move!!!

:) Carla
