Reviews & Community QA

Cottage Farms 2-piece Tricolor Monarda Collection is rated 2.1 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprised I ordered these plants and then reviewed them afterward. I ended up cancelling the order because of the negative reviews about their inadequate size and health upon arrival. They were sent to me anyway and I was angry about that. However, I received my plants today and they are large and healthy. Some of the edges on the very tips on the leaves looked what I can only describe as "burned" but it's very minor. I was pleasantly surprised at the condition of the plants and will be keeping them. I couldn't give a 5 star review as I don't know yet if they will grow but otherwise, they are really nice at this point in their development.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT good packing for shipping I received my plants today. One looks pretty good even though smashed, I am going to try to save it. The other one, not so lucky. Most of it was broken and turning black.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from PATHETIC PLANTS - My plants came today and to my surprise the box was crushed, the two plants were very moist and all the papers inside were soaked. the plants were not in 4 inch pots and didn't look at all like the video shows. the stems are the thickness of a tooth pick the many of the leaves were dead and rotted. I can't imagine anyone putting these in a box to a customer. I had a problem last year with plants too. I guess its time to quit buying off QVC. I know I am not the only one that will get these plants that look this bad. they need to stop showing what the plants will look like when they ship because it isn't so. So very sad. Waited all these months only to get half dead plants.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst plants from Cottage Farms I am very disappointed with the quality of plants Cottage Farms is sending out. They are advertised as established healthy plants. What I got was more like a seedling, very small and had no chance of surviving. Out of the 4 plants I ordered, only 1 was healthy enough to survive. I will notify Cottage Farms and I'm sure they will replace them, but for the price I paid I could get bigger plants at our local nursery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Monarda Received my 2 sets of Monardi already. All 4 plants were in great condition and a week or two later still going well. I think it has already grown about 2”or more. This is my first time purchasing from Cottage Farms and ordered quite a few items. Plants have shipped better than expected, sometimes with a bit of lose dirt, but this is expected. So happy with my purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Received in extremely bad condition Both boxes were squashed, ripped and in poor condition. I planted in 4 small pots (2 sets ordered) and I am losing one plant that was extremely damaged. I was hoping to save it with a lot of TLC but it's not going to make it. I will write another review after my other plants mature. I will post a picture as soon as I learn how to post it. My other three are doing great so far. Again I will post a picture of those also. I want to be fair but at this time I cannot give a recommendation so I said NO.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Received Dead Plants I will never order from this vendor again. The plants arrived loose in a box, and were both dead! Save your money and go to your local nursery. What a letdown!
