Mail Order: What To Expect
Plants you receive by mail need time to adjust. Your plants will arrive in bundles. Upon arrival, they may not appear lush but given time & proper care, they will flourish!
Plant directly into pond and water garden planting shelves or you can fill individual planting containers loosely with aquatic planting media, placing the appropriate fertilizer tablets into the bottom half of the planting media and covering them over, then filling planting media 2/3 to the top. Place the plant in the center of the pot with the roots spread out over the planting media, and then continuing to cover the roots with planting media. The crown of the plant, which is the connection between the roots and stems, can usually be about 1" below the surface of the planting media for best results. Avoid using bagged potting mix and other lightweight soils because they will float and continually cloud pond water.
