How We Pack To Protect Your Plants
Every plant we ship is dug fresh a day prior to shipping. We dig your plant stock, take to the shipping warehouse and dip all roots in a moisture gel called Tera-sorb, surround Roots with paper or in warmer months we use straw so the plants will not overheat in transit, then wrap in heavy packaging paper and containerize in corogated pressure protectant cardboard boxes. We band every box as well as tape for no transit damage.
What is Tera Sorb?
Available in Fine, Medium, and Coarse Grades Terra Sorb is a super absorbent, potassium based co-polymer gel that significantly increases the water holding capacity of soil. It absorbs up to 200 times its weight in water and slowly releases it to nearby plants. We GUARANTEE YOUR PLANTS TO ARRIVE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION TO ANY STATE THE MANNER IN WHICH WE PACKAGE THEM.
• Significantly increase water holding capacity of soil
• Prevent plant losses due to dry soil
• Slowly release water into the root zone
Can Non-Licensed Customers Or Homeowner's Order?
Sure you can. As of the year 2012 we are offering wholesale prices to homeowner's too.This has been due to an overwhelming volume of requests made in the past 10 years. Homeowner's can take advantage of wholesale grower prices and availability without having their orders shipped to a business - and we no longer require a Nursery License to order wholesale.
Transit Preparation and Time In Transit
We pack all stock to last during transit with no problems. We dip all roots in terasorb - a silicone gel, and wrap roots in paper to protect the roots and wrap in paper to further hold moisture in for up to 10-12 days. Transit is never longer than 3-4 days BUT IF IT'S LONGER, YOUR PLANTS WILL LAST 2 WEEKS BEFORE EVEN NEEDING WATER.
My Plants Arrived But I cant Plant Them Right Now
No worries, you have over 7 days to plant after receipt (shipping is usually 3-4 days), or if the weather isn't allowing you to plant - the plants will be fine if you store them in a basement, cellar or garage. Make sure the roots are not exposed (leave in plastic) and water every 3-4 days. The plants will last 2-3 weeks until you can plant.
