Cottage Farms Variegated Pink Eureka Lemon Tree
I'd give it a zero if it were an option...
Ok, I got this tree last year thinking it would be an awesome idea to have and perhaps sell the fruits from it. But the winter killed it so bad that its not even funny, LOOKS like a brown twig as one person stated. I called them and they said, it is considered an annual, 90 days, which is sad b/c i consider it a tree...hence, "Lemon TREE", which should be a year! I will NOT recommend this to anyone. Even when it was first bought, it wasnt growing that fast, but i thought it was suppose to be that way, never produced flowers, but since its a tree, i thought i had a year to give it a chance to grow. IN MY OPINION, SAVE YOUR MONEY!! Not good Cottage farms:((
So many lemons
My tree is in its second year and it is flowering like crazy and I have 15 established lemons on it. There are more lemons coming!!! Thinking about getting a second one
I Got A Lemon
I ordered this lemon tree last year after seeing the presentation on QVC. The tree was in great shape. I was impressed with the quality and size of the tree. I followed the planting directions. It sat on my deck all summer and did well. After bringing it in at the end of the season, I noticed that it began to loose leaves and began dying off. The "tree" looked like a dead twig. How disappointing! I love QVC, recently called Cottage Farms for a replacement. I hope I have better luck with the replacement tree.
Never did bear fruit
Pretty leaves, I live in NC and placed in full sun and always had plenty of water when needed. Grew a little, filled out nice but never produced any fruit. Died when we had cooler weather... not cold! 55 degrees...
Tree died within 3 months
My tree arrive very small and looked like it had sat in the box in the heat too long! I removed the dead leaves and planted anyway and watered and fed as directed but it still died! Not happy with Cottage Farms this past season as my zone seems to get the left over plants and never look anything like on the TV and hard to try and get them to live in that condition! They are good at replacing the plants but never with what I ordered or even close to it! Think it's time for me to give up on CF! Sorry Phillip I love watching you and still will!
LEMONS!!! In Baltimore Md.
Love the look of this tree...And First Season I Have TWO LEMONS WHOOO HOOOO LOL
Make sure you keep it watered and fertilized. Bring in when it gets COLD.
NOT SO MUCH
What I received was more like a bush. The leaves are large and pretty colored but the trunk of it isonly about 4 inches high so it doesn't look like a tree but a bush. Hope it gets taller.
Best Purchase ever
The first tree I recieved was knock out gorgeous,tall full heaithy,I was more than pleased. So I ordered another,came in the same tall box.Thats were the simularity ends,its a runt,so short,but bushy.Lots of insect damage,to the leaves.But still very pretty,it I'm sure it will recover in time.I had wanted two tall ones,one for each side of my big bow window.Still love these trees,and would recommend them highly,and I will order from cottade farms again in the future.Thanks so much Cottage farms.
so far so good
just got this tree and planted it in a pot .It is bushy and has a nice shade of yellow /green on the leaves .There were a few leaves that had a bit chipped off .Hope it does ok .Will follow the leaflet enclosed and have put it on the deck until the winter when it will come inside
"Lemon Tree Very Pretty!"
My lemon tree arrived in healthy, hardy and green condition. Much care was obviously taken by Cottage Farms in the growing and packaging of this lil tree, errr, "big" tree! (Arrived over 3ft tall !!) I luved it immediately!
I planted my tree within a week of arrival. Happy to report that 3 weeks in the pot, the tree is growing Beeeee-autiful !!! (Michigan)
Thank You, Phillip - you nailed it on this one!!!
I purchased and received two trees based on a single on-air presentation I saw. The plants I received were good-sized but not shaped like the example in the presentation. Also, as taking them out of the box I was pricked by several large thorns on the trees. The thorns were not mentioned in the presentation, nor in the written review attached. I called and asked for a return / credit on both. It was not indicative of the on-air presentation.
A TRUE WINNER
I JUST LOVE LEMONS \. I WAITED 2 YRS BEFORE STOCK CAME BACK, MINE ARRIVED WITH ONE VERY SMALL FLOWER ON IT I'M BABYING IT ALONG SO I WILL SEE IF ANYTHING HAPPENS I PLACED MY LEMON TREES OUT SIDE AFTER MOTHER'S DAY AS THE OLD SAYING GOES.SO I HAVE PLENTY OF TIME TO WAIT , BUT I WILL BE ORDERING ANOTHER BECAUSE THEY ARE SO BEAUTIFUL TREES ENJOY THEM.
