What should I do when my fall brassicas arrive?

It’s natural for plants to appear dry or wilted or discolored, especially if they have been delayed in shipping. Nearly all plants will grow well if you perform the following procedure: 

  • Remove plants from shipping box. 
  • Add 1-2 oz. of lukewarm water to each cell and let sit for 24-48 hours to recover from shipping. 
  • Keep plants outdoors or in a protected area that is sheltered from direct sunlight and excessive heat or cold. 
  • Plant as soon as possible and new growth will emerge as soon as roots become established
