Hostas: Shipping Hostas
Note: Priority Mail is best, and the boxes are free at the post office or even ordered online/delivered to your door.
People have suggested that you ship Monday thru Wednesday so that the box does not sit at the Post Office or in a truck too long (gets delivered in the same week shipped in most cases). Try not to prepare the plants more than a day before shipment (they will keep in water and even thrive there).
1. Gently shape the roots into a circle and wrap the root ball in a damp Paper Towel
1. Prepare your Note to recipient, additional trinkets, etc to add to the box
2. Place all of the wrapped of the hostas in the box (don't stuff too tightly).
3. Add any notes, trinkets to the box
4. Close box, seal, label.
5. Ship it out.
