I typically order plants from several sources every spring, and they usually come through the shipping process well. Most growers are careful to use recycled materials, or things that can be reused or composted. Only occasionally does a box arrive with styrofoam packing peanuts that have mixed with loose dirt and plant pieces…making the unpacking a choice between getting the dirt and packaging all over the house or watching the wind carry the dreaded styrofoam out into the gardens.
This spring I decided to grow some Salvia mexicana ‘Limelight’ again, so I ordered them from Annie’s Annuals & Perennials. I was so impressed with the way that they, and the other plants I ordered, were packaged that I’m singing this company’s praises here. Kudos to you, Annie’s!
