Today I received a PKG from Anner Whitehead, Richmond, VA. The TLC
she has expressed on this List in her posts, responses, stories has
carried over into the mundane procedure I abhor in growing irises, i. e.,
packaging and shipping.
I have never seen such care go into the packing of a PKG in
all of my life. Anner sent two pseudacorus that could have survived a two
weeks trip across the Sahara and still have arrived green, crisp, and
moist. The historic TB, ALCAZAR, was already bleached, so all I have to
do is 'set' it in its reserved spot in the historical bed. And, two
surprises (extras) were in the box...the daylily RED RIBBONS and a potted
rose, BUFF BEAUTY. Not one speck of soil was missing from the rose pot.
I have thanked Anner for her generosity, and I wanted the list to
know what an expert PKGer she is. All of us (Michigan Bulb especially)
can learn from her when it comes to shipping non bear-root plants across
Thanks again, Anner!
