How We Package Plants
All plants are dug fresh, placed in large refrigerated coolers to keep them dormant and in excellent condition. Dormant bareroot plants have a 94% success rate when they are prepared correctly for transit. This is how we are able to ship you perennials, ferns, vines, live stakes and mosses year round.
We ship everything but year round.Trees and shrubs in the dormant seasons starting the end of October - May.
To package an order to ship to our customers, we either dig our bare root plants if it's in the dormant season or go to our commercial coolers and package each plant in accordance to the American Nurseryman standards.
We fill cattle feeder troughs with water and terrasorb gel to pre soak the roots for a safe and moist transit.
After the roots soak for 2-4 hours we package in wet paper filler and surround the roots with plastic and then put in corrugated boxes and ship to you fresh.
This is how your plants will look when they arrive.
