"We've found that the plant not only needs to be compact in size, it also has to have an impressing appearance," he advises. It is difficult to ensure compliance of all horticultural regulations of the various U.S. states when dealing with live plants purchased from national e- commerce vendors. To combat this, NatureHills.com developed Plant Sentry, a new program designed to help vendors grow and ship plants that fully comply with a particular state's restrictions. They plan to make the program available this fall to other e-commerce vendors so buyers can be confident in their purchases. www.plantsentry.com
