What is a liner/starter plant :
A liner is a 1-2 yr old plant in pots which are 3"-3 1/2". These are very well rooted plants, normal size ranges from 8" to 20" tall.
A good analogy, in Human terminology, would be-liner being like a teenager.
We ship a lot of liners, to smaller nurseries, to all over the country, in our Main business, outside of ebay.

Plants will be shipped semi-bare-root (with little soil) from December to April. As the plants are dormant (sleeping), it is perfectly safe to send them bare-root. Winter is the safest and the best time to ship plants.
Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
