Re: was Northern Blooms now Northern vs. Southern Blooms


I wouldn't worry about moving plants several times in succession.  I've
moved at weird times, and helped my Mom move her plants whenever Dad would
get transferred, and had few of the setbacks that others report, even with
persnickety plants.
I think it depends on the maturity of the plant and the attention given to
their needs.  Most people treat plants like furniture, and let them bake or
dry out, or rip them out of the ground with few roots. Most *gardeners

Chimonanthus is ok, very fragrant, but I wouldn't give it a star location.
The flowers are not showy, and most years the leaves look like "the morning
after the night before." Like a wilted deb. Not a pretty sight!
