Naturally, none of the local nurseries here in Denver have banana trees as part of their inventory, so I had to order from out of state. The box was crumpled in a few places when it arrived, which lead to me being a little apprehensive about opening the package, but my fears were unfounded. This was obviously not the first time Jackson and Perkins had packed and shipped live goods.
