Caring For Plants Upon Receival
How to Care for Your Plants When Receiving a Shipment From Us:
Congratulations on receiving your plant order from canadiantreenursery.com! Here's a step-by-step guide on how to care for your plants upon arrival.
1. Open the Box Immediately:
Upon receiving your package, it is important to open the box promptly. Although our boxes are ventilated, plants appreciate ample fresh air and light to thrive, so do not delay this step.
2. Carefully Remove Plants from the Box:
Handle the plants with care while unpacking them. Gently remove any packaging materials such as filler. Be cautious not to damage the plants or the foliage.
3. Thoroughly Water the Plants:
Water is crucial for the health of your plants, especially after being in transit. Give each plant a generous amount of water, ensuring the soil becomes moist but not overly saturated. Although plants are thoroughly watered before packing, this will help the plants recover from any dehydration that may have occurred during shipping.
4. Remove any Broken Branches or Discolored Foliage:
Inspect the plants for any damaged or broken branches, as well as discolored or wilted foliage. If you find any, carefully prune or remove them using clean gardening shears. This will promote healthy growth and help prevent any potential future diseases.
NOTE: Sometimes, plants may experience stress or minor damage during transit. It is not uncommon for them to lose a few leaves or exhibit signs of minor stress. This should not cause alarm, as plants are resilient and quickly recover with proper care. For more information on our warranty policy regarding total plant failure, please refer to our 1 year Free warranty policy on our website.
5. Plant at your convenience:
Our potted plants can be planted upon receipt or kept potted for planting at your convenience.
6. Allow Time for Acclimatization:
After receiving your plants, give them time to adjust to their new surroundings. Place them in an area that provides appropriate light conditions, whether it's direct sunlight or indirect light, depending on the plant's requirements. Avoid exposing them to extreme temperatures or drafts. Gradually increase their exposure to sunlight over a few days to prevent sunburn.
By following these steps, you'll have provided your plants with the needed care upon receiving them. Remember to be patient, as it may take some time for your new additions to settle in and acclimate to their new environment. Enjoy your beautiful plants from canadiantreenursery.com!
