Shipping leaves for the first time - HELP...?

zwaantjeMay 31, 2009

I am in the process of putting together a package of leaves as a gift. This is the first time that I am doing this, and I was wondering if anyone had some good advice as how to package them.

Thank you very much in advance.

Hi Milli, I sent leaves to a friend once and it was quite simple. I took 3 or 4 good leaves from about 6 of my violets and put each variety together say four Tommie-Lou I laid them one on top of the other and then wrapped the stems with bounty paper towels as they stay wet the longest. Then I marked the bag with the name of that violet's. Put the leaves in with just a little air and sealed it. The box should have maybe some packing peanuts and or shredded news paper. I hope this will help you some-Terri
