Re: gas plant>WSL orders


That's true, but I've been at this awhile.
Shipments from MidOhio, Berrien Springs MI and Zeeland MI take one day. The MidO and BS shipments arrived nice and moist. The Z shipments were as dry as a new bale of sphagnum peat - it was quite deliberate.
Shipment from Nebraska takes 2 to 3 days. Their plants arrived drier than BS, but much more moist than Z.

Things dry out quick in a box in the back of a
truck... if they were only lightly watered, the trip
could have caused the dryness... just a thought.

BUT I PAY THE SHIPPING! I'd gladly pay for a pound
of water.
