Shipping in the green

Bob makes some good points about removing roots, assuming you know your bulbs and how they will respond.

His comments regarding helping Luminita out by taking some necessary steps of preparation are extremely important and I cannot emphasize strongly enough how important it is to follow his suggestions. She has the last year or so had as many or more than 50 to 80 requests! That's huge for a volunteer to sort, label, and ship. Check with her before shipping about possible packing requirements. We're all in this together, so let's make it as easy for the exchange as we can.

"""At a minimum, it would probably be best to take your material and put each bulb in its own bag of vermiculate and label it.  That way, Luminita doesn't have to go searching for stuff to pack them in.  Depending on the size, a small additional fee for extra postage might also be appropriate.  If the plants are bigger and fewer, it might be easier for the donor to put out an offer and let interested folks contact him/her directly outside of the BX process.  I used this ploy to distribute some pretty large tubers and it worked well, but then again I have a lot of time on my hands to run to the post office!’"""""
