Are you simply looking for a specific sized box?

or are you looking for a method to package & ship your bare root plants?

I determine what size I need, and go up to Wal Mart late at night--while they are stocking the store...There are a great many to choose from at that time. Housewares and Sporting goods are good areas to check.

Auto parts stores or car dealer automotive repair places have wonderful, sturdy boxes, which they will let you have for free.
