Cottage Farms Double Blooming Gardenia Patio Tree
Beautiful and Healthy
Tree received was healthy looking and had 1 bud on it. It took about a week for the bud to bloom! Since then NOTHING! I have transplanted into a large pot, added stones in a plant tray to add humidity and am fertilizing with an acid loving plant fertilizer. Took away a star because of the lack of blooms. TV presentation leaves people to believe tree would bloom a lot immediately!
we found the stick in a bag on the porch
my husband didn't know what it was as there were no tags or papers attached. I told him it must be the gardenia tree and he should plant it in a large pot! We have been so excited.... we have had 1 flower and it is only about a foot high. what happened to the large growing, many flowering, sweet smelling tree we bought go? we would like a new one. Was a lot a money for a stick in a baggie laying on our front porch.
What a Disappointment
My daughters sent us (my mother and I) this tree as a Mother's Day present. I asked them for this specific tree because we love gardenias. It arrived nicely packed but not a bloom or a bud. It was just a stick holding a branch with a few leaves! I did not even want to tell my girls. I could not believe it! It was such a disappointment. I am not sure if the people writing reviews about the beautiful trees they have received are for real.
Beautiful and Smells so good
Received this and it was full of blooms. Have been anxiously waiting for them to open and today--I have my first beautiful flower. Love it. I have taken pics and even smelled the pics on my phone??? and shared the pic with others and they all want one.. So pleased.
I have been ordering flowers for my father from Cottage Farms and Roberta's and the flowers do not disappoint. We placed at least 4 orders and they are blooming. Beautiful and fragrant. Looking forward to see what Cottage Farms and Roberta's will showcase next year.
The gardenia patio tree arrived quickly and it looked very healthy. Mine was about a third of the size as in the photo, but I am hoping that it will fill out quickly.
Full of leaves no flowers yet
Unfortunately wasn't lucky enough to have any buds or flowers but looks healthy and full of leaves. Didnt plant it right away but it did fine in the container it shipped in til I was ready for it. Hopefully it will bloom this summer.
I ordered my second after I saw how beautiful the first one was. Now I just hope that each does well because I just love gardenias.
This tree is very healthy lots of green leaves and a lot of buds one opened the very next day I'm not always happy with the plants I get from cottage farms but they always make it right this is the first time I've writen a review really nice little tree
Not Sure Yet
It came well boxed and had a few buds on it that smelled wonderful! Then I planted it in a large pot out on my patio. I gave it sun and water and now the leaves are turning brown and the buds that were there only opened halfway and then stopped! So I am going to give it some food and see what happens. So I can't give it 5 stars becasue I'm not sure if it will live longer.
Nice Looking Tree But No Buds Or Flowers
Even though the shipping box was smashed during shipment, our gardenia tree appeared to arrive undamaged. We weren't as lucky as others have been however, as our tree was completely devoid of buds and the only "flower" was a cripy, dried out brown thing. One star off due to the lack of buds and blooms that we were hoping for. Hopefully next year we'll have many beautiful, fragrant flowers to enjoy.
Best plant ever
These came in and had one bloom on it. The next day 4 blooms opened. They smell so good and are beautiful. Next year I will buy one more.
