Hi all,
As many of you know I've been out to sea for the past few months..
It's looking like I'll be heading back out the middle of next month and so I need to downsize my collection ( read liquidate!)
I'm going to post these on Ebay in the coming days, but I'll put them here first . Let me know if you are interested in
acquiring some great bloomers. They are all HUGE 15 - 18 tall and most are in 6 1/2 clay pots. I'm asking $10.. for
each plus shipping. They are currently in clay pots, I will ship bareroot or leave in the clay pot ..your choice

I think that depends on how much you are willing to pay for postage. I've sent several to the east coast by priority mail, and they've all been there in two or three days, and arrived in good shape. The plants I sent weren't that large though.....

I get plants priority mail from CA all the time (sometimes in below freezing weather) and they are fine! Some from Santa Barbara Orchid Estate were large plants in spike.

Hi Ted,
These plants all came from Hawaii, some I ordered and had delivered in February ( I'm zone 7/8)
I used to work for Brent and Becky's Bulbs and learned a thing or two about packing plants for shipping.
They are always in the top 5 in the Garden Watch Dog..a site that tracks customer service with mail order plant companies.
I'll be posting these to Ebay Sunday evening so act quickly!

Hi Jim,
A new member JCLEE expressed an interest in that one but I haven't heard from them in a while.
I'll give them to Friday to touch base with me, and if I don't hear back it's yours! I leave on the 19th
our HUGE master gardener plant sale is the 18th, prep for that 17th...so I am running out of time..
tick tok...tick tok!

I'll ship plants on Monday or Tuesday, and as before, all plants are $10. plus shipping. I will ship
bare root unless you request otherwise.
