I had invested in soil hydration crystals and had watered them throughly everyday before hand and packed then up with wet newspaper as well.  They made it without any casualties- a finger lime, some lemon myrtles, osmanthuses (or is that osmanthii?), Rosa damascenas, a bergamot, yuzus, a hawthorn and a couple of other special roses.
