Cottage Farms Quickfire Tree Hydrangea
Outstanding Customer Service/Gorgeous Plant!
Lat year, I ordered the Quickfire and the white Hydgrangea Trees. They both arrived in excellent condition. The white Hydrangea tree really developed nicely with beautiful flowers that were huge and lasted what seemed like all summer and into the fall. The Quickfire initially did well but I believe was injured during a very violent storm we had here in Kansas and died shortly thereafter.
So, I called Cottage Farms and explained what happened. They said they would put me on the list for shipping a new one to me this year. They did just that. I received an e-mail confirming that I was on the list and a follow-up to let me know everything was in process.
I received my replacement bare root yesterday and it looks outstanding! There are little buds already showing, the shape of the plant is beautifully done and it just looks incredibly healthy.
I feel confident ordering my plants through QVC because of the outstanding customer service I receive not only from QVC but also from Cottage Farms and many of the other vendors.
I will report next year as to the success of my plant! I cannot wait to see this beauty in all its glory.
Love these Hydrangea Tree's
I've got 2 of CF Hydrangea Tree's. The 'Quickfire' and one with large pink blooms! The 'Quickfire' is heading into it's 4th Season with me and the other is now 7 years old. I'm in Illinois and our weather is extremes in both directions, add to that drought and now ice and negative 25 degrees! My trees are lovely, and more than hanging in there for me! I get comments from neighbors, "what kind of trees are those, love them!"
Plant them in sunny to medium sun and keep it watered the first couple years. I fertilize mine too to get more blooms. I've pruned them a couple fall's, just to shape them. They bloom and bloom for me. Be aware they take off on their 3rd year, as long as you've watered and fertilized the first couple. They are like a baby at first...you have to be there for them a little to get them started.
No red color
I received this tree last year and was looking forward to the red blooms, the blooms remained creamy white all summer and tree very leggy. In the past 2 yrs I have had to have plants I resent to my house or just credits. I do not know if I will have this resent or not.
CF GREATLY improved quality!
I keep remarking the quality of Cottage Farms has greatly improved. I ordered both the Quickfire and the Phantom Hydrangea trees. The Quickfire is much larger than the Phantom, but each are in great shape, still dormant 4/15/2013 but a warm soak in micronutrients/hormones and both will awaken. I have great expectations for both these trees...thanks QVC and Cottage Farms!
grew easily with no problems and beautiful blooms first year. I live near pittsburgh, pa area. nice accent to a yard or garden.
So far, so good. Love it.
I ordered both the Phantom and the Quickfire trees and both came in great condition. Again, like everyone is saying, the leaves are out and I can hardly wait for the blooms. The Phanton is a bigger tree, where the Quickfire is much smaller. Yet still, I'm excited about seeing them bloom.
Quickfire Tree Hydrangea
The plant looked great when it arrived. I planted it right away. It's getting little leaves on it now, so I hope it blooms and grows profusely. Then I'll love it.
Looks Great So Far
I am a serious gardener of hydrangea so I had to try this one. It came two days ago in excellent condition. Looks just as demonstrated on the show. I planted it according to the instructions (a day after I received it). It's already budding out, which is a great sign. I have high hopes for this unique and lovely tree. The reviews are consistently great, so it surely is worth a try! Looking forward to seeing it grow and flower in future seasons.
The plant comes just as advertised. It has been planted, and leaves are already on the plant. It is healthy, and I have no doubt it will do as advertised...I'm just waiting for the colors to begin!
shes a beauty
The videos on all cottage farm plants are a blessing! They really do help when your trying to purchase.My quickfire hydrangea tree arrived in perfect condition . I put my tree in a whiskey barrel as we're looking to move and this gem is coming with us! Cant wait to see the blooms. Thanks again phillip! Dawn hamburg ny.
Not as mature of a tree ad CF said
The trees arrived in beautiful condition and are doing well. I was suprised at how small the diameter the tree truck was. CF made such a big deal about the thickness of the truck and I even rewatched the video online where they show the truck diameter as being as thick as the host's grip. When I called customer service they were great and refunded my purchase since me trees were not as mature as the advertised them to be.
I plant these tree. and within few days I see bud allover the tree and without the flowers its still stunning. I can't wait to see flowers
