Natives in The Post

I've decided to branch out a bit with my hobby and buy some Correa plants from interstate, well Tasmania to be specific. I placed my order of six tubes with John Gibson, of Plants of Tasmania Nursery on the Sunday so he could mail out yesterday. They were packed in the morning and placed in a 3kg Express Post satchel and dispatched from Hobart that night and I collected them at 7.30 a.m. Tuesday morning. Plants travel well in the post if packed right, as I found out a few years ago when I sent about 15-20 Correa plants "Bare Rooted' to Canberra, something no-one dares to do, but it's all in knowing your plants.

Here's a few photos I took recently.
