Cottage Farms 3-piece Unique Climbing Rose Garden
Only two have survived and none were labeled, I have buds but no blooms yet so I don't know which color has died. I'm impressed with the two that have survived but I still feel a little upset that they were not labeled. I should have called immediately, but will call or email customer service at this point.
Did not last to the next season All are dead
I planted these roses in different areas of my property. All did not last one season. Barely any flowers bloomed. SO VERY SAD
I live on Galveston Island off the Texas Gulf Coast, and these climbing roses have just thrived ever since I planted them about a month ago. I kept them almost too long before planting and was a little concerned if they would rebound when planted. Well, they are perfect! I've fed them once. They are growing leaps and bounds. The yellow one has about 10 beautiful large blooms that are so fragrant. The other two are about to bloom too. Don't hesitate to buy these, they are great!
I ordered these roses, and many more plants last year. some of the plants grew, and many didn't . This was my first time ordering plants from QVC, although I have been a customer for several years and am usually pleased with the products. The roses I got did not do well at all. I live in Northern Indiana and have grown plants/gardens for over 60 years..not at all pleased with these roses. They are still alive, barely and maybe I just need to give them another year, but all my other roses do very well within the first year. These are barely 8 inches high....will not order plants from QVC again.
maybe better advice so we do as these plants need
Couldn't get 1 to grow at all the other 2 is one long stem they were put in a great area what can I do they are so beautiful on TV I'm trying to do a memory garden
Not Many Flowers
I bought these roses last spring and planted them. Two of them grew pretty well but the other is doubtful. I only got one flower on each plant. We'll see what it does this spring. Not impressed enough to buy them again.
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.
