Sending 50 clivia plants to Jhbg from Cape Town
« on: September 09, 2014, 14:58:03 »
Hi Everyone

I need to send an order of 50 common orange clivia to Jhbg from Cape Town. Would it be all right to send them openrooted ? How does one wrap them? Would one post them or do overnight freight?

I would appreciate as much detailed help as possible. I'm a beginner.

Many thanks. The forum is great!
 
Regards
Anna-Marie

Hi Anna Marie first make sure your post office is not on strike
Send open rooted in a box a tip I got from Chris is to tie the plants so they dont move too much
We send plants overseas that take much longer so dont stress some people put moist newspapers around the root I dont
Just make sure about the strike otherwise they can take weeks
Hope this helps

I put each plant in the leg of a stocking, this compacts the leaves in a way that doesn't damage them.

A big thank you to Martin, Stephen, Hester and Leisl for your advice. As usual the Clivia family is so enthusiastic to share knowledge.

Have a great day
