Re: LA: shipping procedure

Thank you so much, Mr. Moores. Exactly what I needed to know in clear, precise detail. I shall follow your directions exactly. :-)

Thanks again,
Bill Wells (southern MO)

Spray-wash and trim off the LA foliage down to eight to ten inches. Dampen newspaper and wrap it around the rhizome, leaving the foliage exposed.
Then put the wrapped rhizome into a plastic grocery vegetable baggie with the foliage exposed.
Twist a rubber band and work it over the rhizome up to the point where the foliage comes out of the bag to keep the newspaper from drying out

Put individual wrapped and bagged rhizomes into a small drawstring trash bag, again leaving the foliage exposeed. Draw the string as tight as it will go. The rhizomes are then double packed which prevents moisture from leaking and soaking into the cardboard. Box and mail.

If you do the above, there will be a happy recipient somewhere down the road.
