First off, don't give the plants the opportunity to sit in a box for a week.
Use a faster shipping method. Here in the states I use Priority Mail through
the US postal service and have EXCELLENT results. In the exceptionally cold
and warm months, I use overnight service and while it does cost more, LIVE
plants are definitely worth it!

Take care,
