How Do I Safely Move My Orange Tree?

Good Questions

Q: I'm going to be moving across town in a few weeks, and I'm taking a lot of plants with me. I'm most concerned about my dwarf orange tree I've got in a container. I don't want to lose all my baby oranges before they're ripe!

Any suggestions for how to move my tree without knocking the oranges off?

Editor: Kate, we would probably stabilize it in a crate or plastic tub and wedge it in the backseat of a car.

Readers, any tips for Kate and her little fruit tree?
