Im moving home in the near future and have a 8ft green codilynne in my garden will it be ok to transport to my new dwellings



I very much doubt it. They dont like to be moved. The only way is if you can get a huge root ball, probably 5-6+ foot deep and wide i should think. This would probbaly work. But alot of work to go too! Sorry

I have learned from bitter experience that it is rarely worth uprooting established shrubs and other plants to move them to your new house. Most of the favourite and well loved plants I moved here died. I think Nicky is right.

I agree with the above, we moved house in 2001 and brought 3 Cordylines in medium sized pots. They have all thrived, look at photos for evidence ! Not worth moving such a well established specimen, sorry to say.
