We can assist you in loading your vehicle – we are very adept at loading plants. We will bag your plant to ensure the roots are protected if they are riding on their sides. You will have to set the plants upright as soon as you get home. Do not store plants in your car on very hot days – you wouldn’t do this with your children or your pets, so treat our (your) plants the same.
Your plants are living things – they have requirements to make sure they survive the trip from the nursery to your planting site.
Once you get home, make sure they are upright and stable, if you are not going to plant right away, plants can be stored in a safe place where they will not blow over in the wind. Make sure all of the roots are covered. All plants will need water as long as they remain in their containers – once a day will be adequate.
