When we dig your hostas, we wash off all dirt, wrap the plants in moist
newspaper and plastic, and ship. It is important that you have someone to
receive the plants when they arrive or notify USPS NOT to leave the package
in the sun. It is important to unwrap and plant them as soon as possible so
they don’t dry out in the packaging.
If you would like plants to be shipped in pots, let us know. Because this can
get quite heavy, there will be additional charges for this.
