Cottage Farms 3-piece Unique Climbing Rose Garden
I ordered the in 2013 and never got a bloom until 2014 and only a few on the red climber. The angel face bloomed two blooms and never did grow (climb) or bloom anymore. Then yellow I had to ask for replacement, due to it was some other kind of rose bush all together. Have gotten a few bloom on the second yellow. And neither the angel face or yellow have done any climbing. They a 2 ft tall ....very sad about this purchase. And yes they are planted in full sun and I've been a gardener for 40+ years.
ONLY LIVES A YEAR
I purchased several bundles of these and the first year they were very pretty. Lots of blooms. Within a few months the stock began to die. I took one to a nursery and long story short, they just said it was bad stock. Replacements were sent, but they were in bad shape too. The ones that lived are skinny, fall over, few to no blooms. Cottage Farms - what in the world are you doing!
I ordered these and they were horrible. One did actually bloom. One had beautiful foliage but not one bloom. The other never grew over one foot tall. Needless to say, I won't be ordering anything else from Cottage Farm.
Preview Your Review
I have been pleased with Cottage Farms in the past but these did not do well at all from the start-Dead sticks by the fence now.
SAVE YOUR MONEY
I think the people that gave these more than 2 stars didn't wait to see if they would really grow or bloom......Yes they grew, but had VERY, VERY, FEW BLOOMS....The one that did bloom didn't last more than a day......They look nothing like on TV but instead, they look like tiny geranium blooms. The other 2 are about 3-4 feet tall & NO BLOOMS. Can't believe I fell for that TV ad.
None are growing
I was so excited to get these because I have a lot of area in the back of my house where they could climb. It's mid-August and none have even started to grow or anything. They don't look any different now than when they were bareroot and planted. I've very disappointed. With other plants I didn't have great results when I contacted Cottage Farms. I needed these this year, not the next growing cycle and it was too late for QVC to refund the purchase price. I spent hundreds of dollars for plants from Cottage Farms and Roberta's over the past 3 or more years and don't really have anything to show for it. I won't be buying again from either company. I love gardening and did quite well when I lived in CA but since moving to TX have had very poor luck.
This Rose never grew. I followed the instructions and it is a stick.
Not as Advertised
The 3 bushes have had a total of 2 blooms on them this year. Roses purchased at Lowes have bloomed consistently up to this point and I only paid $5.00 for each bush. TOTALLY dissatisfied....will not order anything else from Cottage Farms.
We were so excited about all the beautiful INCREDIBLE garden shows this Spring all the Cottage Farm flowers and plants on TV looked too good to be true / real. I was debating whether or not to order plants/ flowers from TV (although I am a QVC shopper since day ONE) We received the 3 roses as expected and then planted them according to instructions and watered as told - we did EVERYTHING perfectly. This was in early April when we received them. The "Improved Blaze" has grown leaves - but no sign of buds. The Royal Gold, grew teeny tiny buds (like mini roses and when they opened they looked like little tea cups (nothing like those pictured or on air) And finally, "Angel Face) barely grew any leaves or in height, maybe an inch and surprisingly there was one beautiful tiny purple rose that lasted a couple of days and then died. I am so sad because watching the presentations are so exciting and people get inspired only to be disappointed. I did not enjoy writing this but this was our experience I hope others are better.
Not growing or blooming
Very Disappointed Not growing or blooming Not worth money paid for
I purchased these in April, 2014 planted them according to the instructions and am so impressed!!!! the yellow and red bushes have already flowered and are growing wonderfully! everything I expected. The angel face is growing slower, but I think we will see blooms yet this year. I plan on future purchases!
Love My Roses
Due to weather, I had to delay planted for a while. I was afraid they wouldn't make it. I planted carefully, followed directions, hoping I would know what the Crown was. They grew & I was so thrilled. 2 have had multiple blooms, the lavender is growing hasn.t bloomed yet. I will any day. The only thing I didn't expect, the Red is a Coral color, not red. Beautiful color This is the first time I have planted roses that lived. I'll get a red rose latter.
