Bethlehem Lights Battery Op. Geranium & LED Hanging Basket
Lasts only a season
Lights quit after the first summer outside. For the price, I would've expected to get at least two summers out of it.
I needed this for an urn on my covered front porch and it is lovely. We have deer that roam our yard at night, which makes it impossible to plant anything live! I have many Bethlehem products around my home, and love everyone of them. This plant looks realistic enough from the street and gives a very warm light at night. I highly recommend! Thanks!
I ordered two of the red baskets...one was 'lost' in shipping, but Customer Service quickly and efficiently remedied that. Now my two little red baskets are hanging on either side of our pergola on an upper deck. My husband likes them very well, and the birds absolutely love them (why, I don't know!) as they fly in and out of them regularly. Pretty sweet since they're not nesting. At any rate, while I thought they were a bit small originally, I've come to like them just the size they are. I added a small bit of artificial greenery/garland just in the middle section and that did help them to look a bit more full. Also fluffed and rearranged and bent the stems to make them do what I wanted them to. The lighting has survived our upper Midwest weather this spring so far, lots of wind and rain, but I do enclose the little battery boxes in plastic to combat moisture. I love that I will have them for at least a few years and they will more than likely retain their good looks. Not a problem for me if the lighting fails, they're fine unlit. Would recommend these little cuties. Maintenance free :-)
needed color by the front door of our vacation home. I purchased 2 black planter boxes to flank either side of the door and ordered 2 of these in red straight away. Problem solved! We have color, no maintenance, lights (if we choose to use them; not a necessity)and the house always looks occupied due to the realistic look of the plants.
I feel these baskets should have been fuller with leaves and flowers for the price. I ordered three of the white, I will not send them back, but this is the last year I will purchase
this item. I ordered a 4 piece set of a different flower last year and the battery box did not hold up; water and condensation was a problem. That is why for the price they need to redesign the battery box for the price they charge. When the QVC customer has a hit or miss with a product something needs to be done to satisfy returning customer.
Use Indoors Only.
I bought two of these hanging baskets. After two rain storms, the lights did not function. Since the thirty day grace period was over, I could not return these. I kept them out on the patio. After a year, the baskets are quite skimpy looking. Quite a few of the leaves have blown off. I really do not think they will last another year. I should of bought real plants-it would of been cheaper.
They are gorgeous when new. Just keep them indoors, out of the wind and rain.
Love these-I have the red/white mix & they look like the real thing. I don't like my plants to light up, so I never use the lights. (I see that's where alot of the problems are) They should sell some baskets cheaper without the lighting!
too small, expensive
Very small, ugly basket, not worth the price. Skimpy with the flowers
still love them
i bought these last year and just put out again for this spring. i still love them. my neighbors think they are real geraniums. when i told them and informed them they have lights. they freaked. i have them hanging on my front porch. had one all red and gave to my dgtr for her new home. she loves it. kept red and white ones for me. too cute!!
These are smaller than most BL baskets and cost less, too. I think this makes them more believable as they are more like the size of a hanging basket you would buy at the garden center. I got 2 pink and 1 white and of the two colors, the white looks most real. In my opinion, the pink is just a little too bright and I wish I had gotten them all in white. I set mine in wire baskets hanging off a white PVC fence. I don't use the lights right now, but would if I had an evening party. I have had no problem with battery boxes in other BL products I have used outside but I can't vouch for these. I really like the look of these and from a distance, they are very real looking. I am so happy that I won't have to water the plants on my fence this summer!
Not Waterproof for Outdoor Use
This is my second purchase of an indoor/outdoor BL hanging basket where the lights stopped working after the first rainfall. Unfortunately that rain didn't arrive before the 30-day return policy! Very disappointing because they are very pretty baskets. Work on that battery box!
Not the best.
I bought a Xmas basket a few years ago. It is great full of lights and greenery. This one isn't as full the Led lights don't do anything for the basket two are. broken .it looks cheap. It also was smashed into a small box. When I can get to a store thought I would buy some nice greenery to add to it. Likely will add a string of lights to it. Not worth the money.Sure I can send it back then it will cost more, also the trouble that I can do without.
