Below is an example of how all plants are packed. The only exceptions to this are plants with pendant leaves (they are packed in deli containers so the pot ‘floats,’ saving the leaves from damage) and plants specifically sold as cuttings.
Plant is pulled and labeled.
Paper batting is added around the base of the plant.
Paper is taped down with craft tape.
A cellophane wrap is taped to pot to maintain humidity during transit.
The plant is wrapped in stiff cardboard paper to prevent damage to leaves.
The packaged plants are taped to the bottom of a shipping box. Any extra room in the box is padded with newspaper or brown paper.
