Cottage Farms 2-piece Fire and Ice Color Changing Hydrangea Duo
I received these plant's in great shape. They are small about 8 inches tall but appear to be healthy. I will get them planted this week-end. I have ordered many plants from cottage farms and most of them have arrived in great shape, and any that were not were replaced with no questions ask. The customer service at cottage farms and roberta's are wonderful and very friendly and helpful.
I received these this afternoon...I wish everyone could see them...nothing like what is shown on air....one plant has 3 leaves...that are cut and yellowed...so scrawny...cottage farms where is your quality control? they are good about replacements but why go through all this to get a decent plant....approx $15+ per plant and barely alive and 3 inches tall...
Rec'd these yesterday they were both about 12 inches tall and in very good condition. I love hydrangeas and I have several oakleaf hydrangeas in my yard. I just hope that Philip was correct about saying that this one can take the sun becasue my yard has very little shade. These be a really nice addition to my flower garden.
arrived in great shape...already getting establish
my plants were fairly large and arrived in excellent shape (wish i could say the same for the creeping roses they sent!). i planted them right away and they have already become established and started to get larger. pretty impressed. can't wait to see the blooms!
Worried but Hopeful
One of my favorites is the Hydrangea....was excited to learn of the Fire and Ice plants. However, they arrived very sickly looking......yellow leaves...stem broken off....look like they are on their "last legs" so to speak.
However, since I love these plants, I did plant them and are in hopes that they will survive. Thus far, they are alive but parts of each has died and no new growth at all...l.....just hanging in there.
(Hoping they will survive and grow!.
If they do, I will get back to you with another comment.
Negative Cottage Farm reviews are censored!
I've written several very negative reviews of Cottage Farm plants received and NONE have been posted by QVC. QVC is clearly censoring reviews, allowing majority of positive reviews to post. Carefully consider ordering from Cottage Farms. the plants received are not like the young plants touted by Phillip. The hydrangea root balls are bone dry, parched and dead. Roses have been drenched for their long packing and shipping process resulting in fungus black spot and majority of leaves dropped. I will not buy plants from QVC in the future - no matter how enticing the sales pitch!
Very happy witih these healthy and big plants!! I put them in the ground and they are growing like crazy! Thank you Cottage Farms and QVC for bringing them to the viewers. Love them!!
they are growing good, all of them
was excited to get these and I have had wonderful success with cottage farm in the past. have many hibiscus, daylilies, butterfly bushes and the cascading rose bushes. this plant seemed a little iffy living in colorado and with this high altitude sun (very hot bright sun) took that chance and bought two sets. bought the pistachio, two sets and this fire and ice..all are growing, even the ones I put in pots to test for the best sun and shade exposure. I know that most plants do not come on big the first year. cottage farm told me that is the time it concentrates on getting good root growth, so true, but the second year, wow do things look fantastic. don't give up and keep fertilizer on them according the label. wonderful company if you have any questions or if you need replacements. better than any nursery around here.
small but healthy
These plants arrived small but healthy. They appear to be thriving, but it is too soon to tell what the end result will be. I have ordered a lot of things from Cottage Farms this season and all arrivied in good shape. One of the other hydrangeas I ordered already is blooming. I am hopeful this one will continue to well. I am in the Florida panhandle,by the way. I always find it helpful when the reviews say where the plants are being grown.
So far so good
Greened up really nice. Kept them inside for about 5 days, watered thoroughly and put them in BIG pots, as recommended. We'll see. My other plants from C.F.'s took a little while, but the other Hydrangea have taken off! Even after the deer ate them down last spring, they were beautifully purple blue, (I use coffee grounds), and dried well, still on my kitchen table! Called their hotline for info and they are always pleasant and helpful.
Mine did not arrive looking like they showed on TV. There were no blooms and the greenery was extremely shriveled up. Even though they looked almost dead, I have put them in the ground to see what will happen. I have not had very good luck in receiving plants from Cottage Farms. To date, nothing I have ordered has survived.
