They were shipped from Hokkaido 12/26 and arrived on my front porch 12/30. I spent about $150 (incl shipping & phytosanitary) for 11 plants. Given the unusual offerings, I thought it was a pretty decent deal.
We\'re having a nice day for New Year\'s Eve (50 degrees & sunny!). So I enjoyed spending some of it planting up my new bare-root guys. I\'m eager to see how they do this spring.
I posted some pics. The newspaper packing is of course in Japanese.
The plants are wrapped in moist sphagnum and arrived moist.
The last picture shows how big the plants are (though some of the rock garden plants are smaller). Overall very pleased with the process.
