Default Re: Shipping plants methods?

PLEASE write on your boxes "LIVE PLANTS" "PERISHABLE". My postal worker brings the boxes to my door when they see this. I never know when the mail will come. It could be anywhere from 10am to 3pm. In that time, sitting in a HOT mailbox in TX can boil a plant. I can't camp out at the door all day waiting for the mail. I print out stickers ahead of time and just stick them on the shipping boxes. Works great.
