Default Shipping plants in cold weather

I wasn't really sure where to put this, so if it needs moved, feel free.

I have bought plants from the S&S forum before on a few occasions, but I have never shipped plants and I've never shipped anything in the winter. I just agreed to send some plants to someone, but I'm a bit worried about the cold. I checked the forecast for both my region and the region I'll be sending the plants to and both areas will be above freezing, but still in the high 30's - low 40's at night. I still see lots of plants for sale in the S&S forum, so I'm wondering how the people selling those plants ensure they get to their destination in good shape while still using priority flat-rate shipping.
