Cottage Farms Moss Rose Patio Garden Kit
Not A Good Value- Buyer Beware
As other purchasers have mentioned, the "Duracotta container" is lightweight shiny orange plastic; very unattractive for a natural garden setting. Since it was not advertised as such, I had anticipated that the "Duracotta" would be similar to the natural looking lightweight resins on the market today. I am hoping the flowers will cover the plastic pot soon. The flowers look OK so far and I love moss roses.
Additionally, the growing medium sent with the product does not fill the container. Fortunately I had more soil to do the job. I love the medium and hope it will be offered for sale on it's own for a reasonable price. The lightweight and compact nature of the growing medium is great for me since I plant on a city deck that is three floors up. Very convenient.
Finally, the materials included (even at a regular retail mark-up) are worth about half of what is being charged here.
i just loved my moss roses
I was so happy to see my moss roses start blooming it looks so pretty . i used the bud and flower booster from cottage farms and it just started blooming like crazy. i love all my cottage farms flowers i ordered and have had very good luck with everything i purchased and i don't have a green thumb at all either. This is my first time at planting a flower garden too.. Just used all the fertilizer that were recommened by cottage farms and my flower garden is just beautiful.
Not something I would order again.
I received this order in good condition. The plants were blooming and I am well pleased with them. The pot, unfortunately, is thin and unattractive. I used the soil that came with it, but needed more to complete the pot. The holes are too big, and the soil runs out every time I water. Too much money for a few plants, not enough soil and a pot that looks bad and cannot contain the soil.
2 rating due to the pot and inflated price
I wasn't sure of myself when I put this together due to the instructions but after a few weeks, I have my first couple of flowers. The soil that was sent along was ridiculous and I feel for the money the pot should have been clay as opposed to a very cheap plastic. The plants are very nice but I know I could have done better price wise at one of my local nurseries. Would I pay this amount again for this item...NOPE!
This is BEAUTIFUL!!
I ordered this and did exactly as he said to do and within a couple to three weeks of sitting on my front porch, I am already getting flowers blooming and they are growing like CRAZY! They are so pretty, I want another one!!
I'm giving this product 2 stars only because the plants are very nice. But the planter is junk. I will not be using it around my home. Nothing but cheap junk! I will buy a strawberry jar from the nursery tomorrow. At least I'll know it won't blow away!!!
HATE the planter
The planter is a very thin, ugly, orange plastic container with holes. It's supposed to look like pottery but doesn't come close. I bought 2, 1 for me and 1 as a gift. I am too embarrassed to give it away. They go straight into the trash. No redeeming value at all. On the other hand, the plants are quite nice and appear very healthy. The enclosed soil is nice also. That's why I am keeping them and going shopping for replacement pots. I will not buy planters from Cottage Farms again.
SO MUCH FUN TO PUT TOGETHER...GREAT PROJECT FOR KIDS OR GRANDKIDS TO HELP PUT POT TOGETHER. SO EASY AND PLANTS IN GREAT SHAPE AND WERE MOIST IN PACKAGE. SIMPLE, FUN, AND PRETTY !!!
Beautiful Moss Roses!
I didn't use the planter they came with but used them to plant around white hydrangeas in containers. They were beautiful!!! The flowers are small but the colors are vibrant. So do keep in mind that you can use them in the container they come with or as surrounding outside plants in containers. They bloomed all summer into the fall. I was very happy with them!
Love This Kit!!!
This arrived in excellent condition and did not mind waitng a few days before it could be planted. My 3 year old granddaughter and I put this together in about 45 minutes (allowing extra time for the little one to "help me garden"). It has turned out beautifully!!!! The flowers are beautiful and the soil is easy to work with. A couple stems broke off the flowers as my granddaughter "helped" me, I placed them in the top of the container with the last 2 plants and they have taken off and started growing as well! I can without hesitation recommend this item!
Is exactly as presented.
I have only had the rose patio garden for 10 days; however its growing every day and looks very pretty already. The kit was so easy to put together and I enjoyed doing it. Look forward to it on my deck all Summer and next year planting it again.
