Re: Mail Order Nurseries / One Speaks

Kitty: I work nights so am always home during the day so don't miss
deliveries...and for anything shipped through regular mail, I am very
lucky to be able to have everyhting delivered to our post office (we get
no home mail delivery, only p.o. boxes) where the postmaster for our
little town can put larger sized items in big lockers for us. Go to the
post office everyday, so would not miss anything there, either. But am
most grateful for the reminder, just in case. Thanks.

Melody,<br>One other thing to consider with early shipping...<br>How
long will the box be sitting outside. If usps delivery - does
your<br>carrier deliver your mail early and would it sit outside until
you get<br>home that night? UPS deliveries to residences are usually
done in<br>afternoon - they take care of business customers first. Or is
someone<br>home to take the package in? I have everything delivered to
my office so<br>it's never left outside. However, most packages are well
insulated<br>enough to get by for awhile and most plants can handle
pretty low temps,<br>so I don't think it is much of a problem. Just
thought I should bring it<br>up if this would be a consideration. Maybe
someone else has something to<br>say on this.<br><br><br>Kitty<br>>
Kitty: That ordering for shipping is April is brilliant! That then
gives<br>> me the luxury of time...ooh, I see a whole new world opening
up for<br>> me!!!! Thanks a bunch!<br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> Melody, IA (Z

Melody... You will also sometimes have been asked for a shipping
date.<br>> Consequently you'll tell them sometime in May because that's
when it's<br>> warm enough to put them in the ground - when you're busy
as all get out.<br>> Here's what I do: I tell them to send my plants in
mid-April...You may<br>> think that handling these plants twice is extra
work, but it is all<br>> easily done on your own schedule and I think
the plants are much better<br>> for it. Kitty<br>> <br>> <br>>
