Cottage Farms 2-Piece Double Delight Gardenia Collection
Cottage Farms Lays Another One
I bought 2 of these. Fed, watered and had them in 8 hours a day of sun. Got ONE blossom the whole season. Had an awful experience with this provider several years ago and had not bought since. Will I never learn?
OMG!!! I am so glad that I took a chance and ordered these plants. They came very well packaged. I put them both in the same pot, put them on my patio where they are in the sun most of the day and I am absolutely amazed!!! I live in Ohio so the sun is pretty strong but not as much as south of here. You always hear how hard these are to grow, well not these. The plants are growing. Being this is the first year for them I didn't expect any blooms, wrong. I have already had three and there is one more that I can see coming. I even broke one off as it was about done and brought it in the house and had it floating in water. Great fragrance too!!!
Not "shipped as shown"
I received these plants with great expectations and was I wrong! The plants I received were one-third the size on the website in the "shipped as shown" picture. I can count the leaves on the plants I have and there are less than 20. This is the third item I ordered from Cottage Farms and all three are not at all like represented in the presentation. These are planted and I will check the presentation video again in a month to see how they compare. I am not impressed!
Took a chance
I took a chance on these,had some issues last year with my live plants from qvc. But I have to say I was very pleased . These arrived today and are in very good shape. They are very green and have new growth,great root system too. Now all I have to do is wait and see how they do but am very pleased. Mine are a nice size for the price,not tiny like some other reviewers stated. Can't wait for the blooms.
Teeny Weeny Plants
I've watched these plants now for a couple years and decided to buy this year. Clearly Philip is not provided the same plants that are shipped. Like many others, I received two plants that are UNDER 3" tall - not worth $29.00, $9.95 s/h and sales tax ! These are the starter size of the plants Phillip sold me. Admittedly, the plants are green, but not as mature, branched and NO buds - they are immature starter plants - nothing like what was demonstrated to me. I videoed each show that featured the plants I purchased ($450+) and after several years of poor quality I determined to request refund for everything that is less than what was sold to me. I just wrote a complimentary review for plants I've received and opened this box and was disappointed. My issue is a 5 month growing season, hardly conducive to a forgiving attitude. Sorry Cottage Farms, once again small, feeble plants. Looks like a $40.78 refund is coming my way.
shipped 3" tall!
Very green but not like the samples they show to be shipped...
Arrived green and healthy
The 2 piece gardenia plants arrived well packaged, healthy, and green. I planted them and so far so good. Can't wait to see what happens with them later on this summer. I applied Root Blast when I planted them. This should give them a good start.
A must have
This is my second season ordering these. I couldn't help myself!!! I had to have more.
Gardenias are one of the prettiest blooms and the fragrance is amazing!
Arrived in Good Condition..
First time ordering from Cottage Farms..Very scared too.
The Gardenia's were my smallest I rec'd..But look
very healthy. Can't wait to see what they will do!
Just reordered more honey suckles and climbing roses!
Very very pleased!!!! Packaged great...Live in FL
Not heat resistant
I live in Central Florida where our summer heat is brutal. These did not fair well in the heat even with daily watering. They be better somewhere more north of us.
I bought this Gardenia's last year and they did not bloom so far this year doesn't look like it and they were fertilize.
A smell like NO OTHER!! So Beautiful
I ordered these last year and I am back for more. They came with buds on them and bloomed like crazy. The plants were bigger than what I expected and loaded with buds and blooms. Cottege Farm is the best and they do a great job with thier plants. I cannot wait for everything that I have been ordering to come.
