Host a Plant-Swap Garden Party
Suggest that guests carry their new plants home in milk crates, buckets or boxes. In the car, a plastic liner will catch spills, or offer your friends plastic garbage bags in which they can set their boxes of plants. Keep the cars cool by suggesting everyone park in shade.
To help everyone transport divided plants, keep the roots moist by wrapping them in damp paper towels and old plastic bags. Protect the roots by leaving the soil affixed to them. Remind your party-goers to transplant within 24 hours, if possible, and keep plants in a shady spot until they are put in the ground.
