Rated 1 out of 5 by Klove Difficult plant to grow
first off I would like to say this was an epic fail topiary gardenias are absolutely one of the most hardest of gardenias to grow I am truly disappointed in the tree I purchased two of these spending over $100 the leaves are constantly yellowing and falling off I am truly disappointed in the quality of this tree please save yourself the headache and do not buy this tree I know it looks beautiful when you first get it but after a few weeks it starts to look not too cute they absolutely make it so easy to grow still under 90 day warranty but will not request replacements for these items only because I do not want to go through the stress of trying to care for this planet any longer I will take my losses

Got this last year. Maybe got 3 or 4 flowers before dying. Certainly never got to resemble the one shown in pictures or on tv.
Rated 3 out of 5 by EllaP Didn't make it
I'm heartbroken because mine did not bloom like Phillip's, had a couple blooms which was small but fragrant. Then it died. Unfortunately, I did not request a replacement in time.
Rated 1 out of 5 by dn2earth My first bad review
I have been buying from both companies QVC works with for several years and I have never left negative feedback. Simply put they both have always replaced items that do not work out. Until now. I love gardenias. I purchased 2 of these trees in 2014 and they did not make it, I am a experienced gardener. They replaced them, they did not grow at all again and now they will not replace them. You either back your products or you do not. I am upset. I will still buy from CF because everyone makes mistakes. Robertas has always replaced items that did not perform, even annual way past the 90 days guarantee.I am 100 percent honest with the vendors, if a plant did not grow due to a mistake I made I do not ask for a replacement.

I love gardenias‼️ last year I was thrilled to receive this item. I followed the instructions for fertilizing and watering & the poor thing lost it' sleeves & died. My landscaper looker at it & confirmed it's demise so I both wrote & phoned Cottage Farms for a replacement & have never heard back from them
I expected them to send me a plant this year but still no response. Not a way to run a company‼️‼️
Rated 1 out of 5 by Grammie48 So disapointed
I was excited to get this tree as I love gardenias. It arrive with one large bloom that smelled wonderful. Soon after the buds began to die and drop off. Found the soil was infested with bugs we replanted with new soil but it continued to die. It was after the 90 days so lost my money. After reading all the other same negative reviews I won't try it again.

As the weather has cooled, and the rain has returned, these two trees have exploded with buds! I can count at least ten to fifteen on each tree just this morning! So happy to see them thriving.

Be patient with your gardenia tree and it will thank you with many beautiful flowers. Most important - do not over-water as the leaves will yellow and fall.
I had my Gardenia Tree for several months when it began to display brown leaves that would drop off quickly. We discovered that it was infected with Whiteflies which form a white powder around new growth. I called the seller direct and was given perfect advice. I removed the tree from the pot, discarded all of the soil, washed the roots and tree with a soft spray from the hose, cleaned the container with a mild Clorox solution, and then repotted the tree in fresh soil. Gone were the Whiteflies and the tree is once more beautiful and green. No more dropping leaves and it is growing much taller. I also occasionally sprayed the tree with Bayer Rose and Flower Insect Killer. I am now so happy with my Gardenia Tree. We live in Florida where most plants grow easily, but where ever you live, beware of the Whiteflies; they can kill your plants. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE MY GARDENIA TREE.

This plant died after my husband and I took very good care of it. It died soon after it arrived.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Rachel1837 Saddest tree ever
It was cute and small when I received it with lots of buds and 1 blossom that smelled amazing. That was the end of anything good for this tree. I put it in a large pot, bought special soil for gardenias. Had it on my porch and watched it slowly dying. Bought special fertilizer and water treatment for gardenias. It continued to die. I moved it out to my lawn to give it more daily sunshine, it got worse. I moved it to my backyard. Worse. It's been 5 months. I've never seen a flower. I've never seen a bud open. I should have clued in after week 1 when it lost half of it's leaves, and requested a refund. But I thought maybe it was just trauma from it being shipped or that I could save it. Total waste of money.
Rated 3 out of 5 by darla1213 Great Smell
Love the smell of gardenia and was excited to get this. I only had one large flower that lasted several days and smelled great. The rest of the flowers that have bloomed, although smell great, have been rather small and only last a short time. Hopefully next year it will yield better flowers

This has bloomed on my deck and fills the backyard with a delicious scent. Impressed.
