Arrival Tops

  1. Try to be home when your plants arrive. If you can't be home, consider having UPS leave them in a shady spot near your door. We can always leave brief instructions for the UPS driver, just type these instructions in the comment box on our order form.Do be aware though, that if you instruct UPS to leave the box, and it disappears, they are not responsible, nor are we.
  2. Get the plants out of the box ASAP. To insure their safe arrival, our plants are shipped in high-tech cardboard, lots of it. This needs to come off the plants so they can breathe (just another reason to be home when the plants arrive).
  3. Set them in a spot that gets morning sun and afternoon shade for a few days. This helps them to get over their jet lag. Don't put them in the house. Herbs don't do well, under normal circumstances, indoors. They need fresh air and sunshine.
  4. Check for water. Make sure the soil in the pots is thoroughly moist. Water so that the water drains all the way through the pot.There is no rush to plant them, as long as they are outside and they don't dry out. Check often. Small containers dry out quickly.
  5. When you do plant, make sure that the rootball of the plant is completely wet and the potting soil or garden is also moist. The most common reason for transplants to die in hot weather is not enough water during the transplant phase. The transplant phase lasts about three weeks, so keep checking to make sure that your plants and the soil around them are wet. You don't want the soil to be so soggy you can make mud pies, but you want it be moist enough that it crumbles gently in your hand.
