Re: Plant disaster/ups versus usps

Agree about "no wiggle room". I order shrubs/trees from Forestfarm, and when they arrive, they are literally roped down in the box. Have never had damage to anything.

Marge, I get shipped plants from all around the country in pots and really
have had few problems. The key as I've finally found out is to make sure
there isn't any wiggle room in the box at all. If you can keep the plant
from moving and Igor doesn't sit on it it should arrive in good condition.
I also ship the plant laying down and pack it that way.
