Removal to Norway – How to Take Care of Your Plants – Part 2

posted: 28th March 2018

So far, we discussed what to take into consideration when you want to remove to Norway with your houseplants and we laid out an action plan that takes place until three days before the moving date. In this second part, we will offer you some suggestions on how to pack your plants, what to expect while they are travelling and how to introduce them to the new environment after the relocation.

Moving to Norway - flowerDuring the removal plants may suffer from:

  • temperature extremes – Norway is a northern country and even in summer, some very cold periods can occur.
  • lack of water or extreme humidity levels – If you move in the spring or in autumn, the humidity is very high and if you combine that with the sudden, cold, northern wind flows, you may end with a plantsicle instead of a healthy plant.
  • restricted space within a container – bear in mind that the flight distance between London and Oslo is 1156 kilometres, and when you move your house by truck or by ship it can take from 3 to 5 days. You must pack your plants accordingly so they can be comfortable during the journey.

To avoid all of this or at least to minimize any risks as much as possible, it is essential to have good communication with your Norway removal company and your assigned coordinator. All removal experts know how to safely transport your pots and their inhabitants – they will provide you with boxes, bubble wrap, and any necessary special containers.

Stage 2 – Packing Your Plants for the Big Removal to Norway

1. Water your plants – Two days before the moving water your plants as usual. Do not overwater them or you might cause them to freeze or grow fungus in the soil. In summer, water them the day before moving since the temperatures are generally the highest in that season. Remember that cacti and other desert plants do not require much watering.

2. Wrapping time – Assuming you have obtained the needed packing materials from your removal specialist you must start to pack your plants the night before the scheduled relocation.

3. Wrapping the big ones – large plants must be wrapped in an old sheet, in tissue paper or in old newspapers to prevent branches from breaking. If you must fasten large plants, do it with soft bands in the direction of the growth to prevent breakage. Wrapping and interweaving the foliage of the big plants, makes them more susceptible to damage if they tip over.

Removals to Norway - hanging plant4. Wrapping the hanging ones – place hanging plants in individual boxes and gather foliage gently on top. Do not put sheets or newspapers tightly on top of the plants – they can cause a greenhouse effect and suffocate your leafy companions.

5. Wrapping the smaller ones– construct protective funnels out of heavy paper with the height of the plant and the diameter of its pot. Place them around the plants while making sure the foliage is gently folded and tape it firmly. Place each pot gently in a transport box.

6. Make the box comfortable – pack paper in the box around the base of the pots to hold them in one place. Make small air holes in the sides of the box (if it is not already perforated) so plants can breathe. It’s a good idea to pack the plants by size so there will be equal space between the lid and the top of the highest plant.

7. Nametags – Mark the boxes so you know which plant is in which box. This will come in handy when unpacking. You can also put warning labels or use tape marked with the “Fragile” sign.

Stage 3 – Welcome to Your New Home

Congratulations, you have successfully removed to Norway, now it’s time to free your houseplants and take proper care of them. For the actual unpacking, you can use the hired removal company or do it yourself.

Flower moving to Norway1. Let them breathe – when you move the plants into the house, open their boxes immediately, but leave them inside for a few hours to minimize the shock. Depending on when you removed to Norway, the temperature difference can be from two-three degrees to ten or more. Give the plants time to adapt.

2. Setting in – later in the day, unpack them gently. To avoid breaking branches, cut around the base of the carton and lift it off the plants by its lid. Place the plants in locations similar to the ones they were used to at your old place and try not to move them around too much. Don’t forget to water them and consider giving them some plant food.

3. The sun is not their friend – be careful not to put them in direct sunlight until one or two weeks after the move. Since you have relocated to a country with a colder climate such as Norway, you may need cool white fluorescent lights to keep the plants comfortable for the first weeks.

4. Don’t forget the cuttings – plant the rooted cuttings and take care of the fresh ones according to the type of plant and its demands.

5. Recovering – after the initial move the plants may experience short-term shock, so don’t be alarmed if some of their leaves start to yellow or drop. Monitor them and contact a specialist if this persists.

6. Time for a new pot – after a month it’s time to remove your green companions from their transport pots to new ones. Give them some time to adjust. Due to its geography, Norway experiences rather extraordinary sun cycles – periods with constant sunlight, or periods with complete lack of sunlight. Observe your plants and move them to the right spot according to their need of shade, light, and humidity.

7. The outside world – if you have prepared in advance with a proper greenhouse for your outdoor plants, you must replant them immediately after arrival. Take into consideration the changes of the seasons, the aftershock, the type of soil and the Norwegian weather.
