Lost all confidence in Cottage Farms products..
Never again...back to LowesNursery Center....
Didn't Arrive As Described
I received my tree yesterday and was so disappointed. It came as a stick, yes three braided but a dried up looking stick. There was not even a dried leaf on it. I called customer care and they instantly refunded my money. I have never had an issue with qvc and returns. It made the disappointment much easier to handle. Thanks QVC.
Do not waste your money
Probably too late now but I am going to try and get a refund or another tree, this bloomed 2 flowers on it 2 years ago and nothing since then. I have babied this and gave it tender loving care and nothing! I followed the pamplet that they put in the package with it and nothing.....I am so mad. I was going to try and get my money back but decided to wait another summer to see if it would bloom. I am never ever buying from Cottage Farms again if they dont make this right. I also bought 8 pc Coral Crush Petunia Wave Medley and it didnt bloom at all. Bought the Weeping Julianne Lilac Tree, its growing, twigs going all over the place but no buds at all. My neighbors made fun of me I told them you just wait its going to bloom next year and NOTHING!..All Cottage Farms items. If I were you I wouldnt waste your money. Just saying! Oh and I purchased the pink grass too omg it was dead after the first summer of planting it. Take his advice and save your money. Do not buy , Phillip makes it sound so wonderful but trust me, if they dont do something I'll be back to let everyone know.
only last a year
i love this plant took good care of it and flowers on it till february this year but i can not get it replaced.
Love my purchase!
Arrived a little wilted and the blooms were falling off, but it perked right up after I watered it and re-potted. Now less than a month later it is quite perky and has started blooming again! I am on-line buying some fertilizer for it and the other Cottage farms buys I got. Thanks!
This braided tree arrived as stated in presentation. I have many hibiscus in my yard, but wanted this one potted on my patio because of uniqueness of the braid with tricolor. I transplanted to a very large pot with a plant dolly underneath, so I can roll around as needed. This plant arrived with many buds and is blooming very well. I pot in a potting soil which has fertilizer in it. This cuts down on feedings, but I still use a high bloom liquid fertilizer. Beautiful plant.
PS I live in San Diego which is a plus.
I received my tree a few weeks ago and planted it in a bigger pot right away. It has already bloomed and has more coming. It did lose some leaves since I received it but I think that's due to the shock of shipping and transplanting. I see new baby leaves shooting out. I live in Texas so hibiscus do great here. I see some people have problems with these but I bet most of those reviews are from northern states. Remember, this is a TROPICAL hibiscus not a hardy hibiscus. It needs a warmer climate. Also, even here in Texas we have had some cooler temperatures this Spring so our local garden show says everything is about a month behind schedule. Even my three tropical hibiscus I've had for years froze back this Winter and are slowly putting out their new leaves. As the temperatures get warmer and a fertilize with Miracle Gro plant food I know my little tree will be a show stopper come summer.
Ordered 2- 1 a gift the other I kept. Planted upon arrival. One did not come to live at all. Qvc did replace. This is a tri-color (3plants in one) tree, now it is my second spring with the replacement and 2 of the braids are dead. Last year one died and this year the other. I bring it into the house in the winter and care for it all year, so no reason. The gift tree is down to 2 braids. Trust me these are sticks not at all lush and green as the TV. Both tress receive the cottage farms food.
I don't believe it !!
Last year I purchased 2 of these. One did fairly well, the other did not. I had one (1) yellow flower. I felt perhaps by bringing them in the house for the winter that both might pick up this year. So far the fairly well one is getting leaves, the other is dead. I called Cottage Farms for a replacement just now only to be told they are ANNUALS and have a 90 day warranty and they will do nothing. These ARE NOT CHEAP !
I had other plants that did not live, but never called for a replacement.
I have purchased MANY, MANY plants from CottageFarms, but am seriously considering ending my purchasing. from them. I thought Cottage Farms wished to PLEASE their customers!!!! Right, Phillip.
This tree arrived yesterday and was beautiful. Today there are about 5 brown leaves and even though it was watered it looks droopy. There were no intructions with it, only the packing slip. I will give it a week and return if need be. I didnt realize it was sold as an annual. To expensive if it's not meant to last a lifetime.
I bought this plant 3 years ago. It arrived in good shape. I followed the directions to a t, and it had 1 blossum the first year. I live in Pa, so I did bring it in during the fall and winter. It lost all of its leaves, but I babied it hoping the next spring it would come back. It has lots of leaves, but has no more blossoms ever. It was a big waste of money. My neighbor has one from the local nursey, and it blooms like crazy. And she brings it in way past the cooler nights. Its so full and lush. So buyer beware.
