Received an eBay fig tree today. This little tree didn't move a bit in the package. Did destroy the box getting it out...but that is quite ok for a beautiful, unscathed tree.

Never thought about using foam. Novel idea! Thanks for sharing!

It might help to post who did the packing this way. Also what is that foam stuff? Looks very useful for holding stuff in place.

Looks similar to that canned insulating foam called Great Stuff.

Lucky me, I purchased two plants from him. It is good to know they will be very well packaged.
