How Lindsay Grows & Ships Our Live Plant Trios

Examples of different scented geranium varieties
Lindsay Del Carlo, trial garden manager



The spring months are when we ship our culinary herb and scented geranium plant trios. All are locally grown by trial garden manager Lindsay at her backyard home nursery.

Mother scented geranium plants

Here is the process:

In early spring, Lindsay begins taking hundreds of cuttings from her big "mother" foundation plants.



Scented geranium cuttings growing in pots

She roots them in special cutting mix, and then, after about 6 weeks, transplants them into ample 3½ inch pots in good potting mix, to grow into sturdy, big, well rooted seedlings.




Grown scented geranium plants before they ship

Here's what the potted trios look like fully grown and ready to ship.





Scented geraniums wrapped for shipping

Each pot gets a cardboard collar to hold the soil, and then is carefully rolled up in paper and fit snugly into its custom shipping box.




Truck full of boxes to be shipped

Plants arrive in fine condition, ready to pop into your garden or pot!
