Cottage Farms 3-piece Veranda Rose Collection
Brilliant and Beautiful
I dont know why other reviewers lost their roses but all of the ones I bought bloomed. They grew so much that I had to trim them a bit. The roses were beautiful and the red was unlike any I have ever seen. It was a brilliant hot red. Visitors to my garden were amazed at the saturattion of its color. I am back for 2 more sets. Although the plants I received weren't very large, they took off after planted.
I'm sorry to see that some people did not have a good experience with these roses, because I found them to be amazing. They grew quickly and had lots of blooms all summer long in the first year! The colors are absolutely gorgeous, too. I can't wait to see what they do this year!
Nothing I ever bought from Cottage Farms grew
Repeat above. I got peonies, Spring assortments and these and nothing grew or lived.
Nice addition to your patio garden
I purchased these almost 1 1/2 yrs ago. Yes, they are small when you receive them but if you plant and care for them as for any rose, they will flourish. I do disagree with the video and will recommend that you spray these roses for black spot. The color choice is lovely, the flowers are nicely shaped and well petaled, and they stay within the size range mentioned. I have mine in large pots on my patio and am happy with them. I live in a very hot and humid climate and cover my pots when it freezes. They are not "plant and let grow" and if you want your roses to be successful you will need to fertilize, water and spray regularly.
All of them died. I was able to see one cream rose. I really had my heart set on these . They looked beautiful on TV. What a joke everything I ordered from Cottage Farms died. No more I will not order again. My husband told me I was wasting my money,he was right
Not as advertised
The rose bushes are a total failure. They look so pretty when advertised but a whole different story when you get them. The blooms (and there were very few) are about the size of a nickel. TOTALLY dissatisfied....will never order any Cottage Farms products.
Small and sick looking
These plants for the price and high shipping charge was not worth the effort. They are small and when arrived yellow leaves.
Don't expect much from them
One Rose was ONE STICK
One of the three roses was ONE STICK; nothing like what was shown on QVC as to what the buyer is to receive. The other two were not much better. When I called Cottage Farms I was told what is shown on TV is not correct . I emailed Cottage Farms a photo of the one stick rose: called again and was told the "leaves looked good", Obviously "if you're not happy we're not happy" means little. QVC refunded my money. Over $9 for a stick, about TWO INCHES tall considered as a rose: who would ever find that acceptable.
Gorgeous colors, abundant blooms 1st year!!
Got these last year and was so pleased. Nice size, beautiful colors and bloomed all summer. Can't wait to see them come back again this year. In my front side garden, and a show stopper. You won't be sorry. The lavender is unexpected and pretty and the red is so vibrant. The peachy pink is just gorgeous!
Adorable Little Flowers
I had very good luck with these little roses last year. They were hardy performers and bloomed when many other plants 'rested'. The flowers were small and compact, and made for a beautiful border plant. I just ordered two more sets for this coming season. Can't wait to add them to the flower beds.
Not what I expected
As an avid gardener, I was a little surprised to get these small little plants. I did plant them in a container for this first year, placed them properly, fed, tended, but they really are the shabbiest roses I've seen. They hardly grew at all, and the few blossoms that came out were pretty sad. I was leery of ordering, as I have had problems with other plants I ordered from cottage garden, but I have tons of rose bushes, climbers etc, so what the heck. Live and learn.
I received nice healthy plants, and planted them a couple of days later. They already have blooms and buds on all of them. The colors are great too. They are red, lavender and pink. I would definitely buy these again.
