Hi Fred,

Good luck!!!!

The only time I ever moved my collection, 30 years ago, it was much smaller 
than now.  An acquaintance of mine with a commercial greenhouse (at that 
time) let me store my plants in a corner for the 4 to 5 months I had to 
wait for the new place to be finished.  And I suspect he fumigated the heck 
out of my stuff as soon as I was out the door.  I would hate to go through 
what you are planning.
