Packing plants for shipping
Shipping plants, and especially roses, is not a difficult job. You just need to prepare the plant for the road, in order not to get harmed. As long as the plant is well rooted, there shouldn’t be any problem.
Packing the roses
Another way to ship plants is without the pot. What you need to do is replace the soil from around the roots of the plant with some sifted compost and then wrap them in a newspaper and then place the root ball in a plastic container. You will need to water a little the newspaper and the compost to feed the plant while on the road. Seal the plastic container or bag around the plant.
How to transplant the roses
After the plant has been shipped, you will need to remove the plastic container or bag from around the roots and then place the root ball into a pot with dampened soil. Bury the roots and then place the plant into direct sunlight. This is a priority.
