Ship a bare root Meyer Lemon ??

14 years ago

Hello all,

I will be sending a Meyer Lemon tree (about 3 yr old) to a friend in New York. I am in Virginia and the tree is in a pot. Will there be a problem if I send the tree bare root?? It is my plan to remove the tree from the pot and gently shake/rinse the soil off & then pack the roots in moist sphagnum moss in a clear plastic bag. I have received trees like this and after some TLC they do quite well. Will a 3yo Meyer be OK this way?? Sending the tree potted would cost a small fortune. The tree is very healthy with no noticable disease. The lemons were harvested already.

Thanks all,
