Roberta's 2-piece Sweetly Scented Philippine Jasmine
don't waste your money
Okay, I've had it with ordering plants from QVC. I've done it in the past and thought maybe I didn't follow instructions correctly. Couldn't wait to get these. Planted just as the instructions said and I think they have only grown about 3-4 inches since planting them more than a month ago. What a disappointment! Saw these at a hotel in Carmel and couldn't believe the fragrance so was so excited to be able to get them when QVC offered them. Never again!
This is one of my favorite purchases. The plants arrived in excellent condition, started blooming as promised. Would really recommend....smells like paradise! Very happy !
Of course I just have the plants beginning to grow in pots but they are looking great. The packaging was the best I have ever seen on plants received by mail! My husband requested the jasmine as he loves the fragrance. I potted them just over a week ago (and have them outdoors for the present), and they are already starting small blooms. We are hoping to enjoy these for many years. I ordered dahlias and obedients as well. Dahlias not showing yet (planted in a bed) and 2 of the 3 obedients look good so far. Hope the 3rd obedient will improve. I would recommend Robert's plants to anyone.
So far so good
The two plants I have received were small but seems growing well in the sunny location. They look like they are budding and I can't wait to smell the flowers. I have very good luck with Roberta this year. All the plants I have received are doing great. Thank you Roberta for sending me healthy exotic plants! It will be nice if Roberta will offer more trees next year.
Received the plants in good condition and with a few blooms on them. Seem to be doing fine so far after about two weeks since receiving them.
Reminiscent of Hawaii!
Plants arrived in excellent condition.......starting to bloom and smell like heaven!
Received my 2 Jasmine plants in perfect condition,They were packaged nicely, plants looked great nice and green with many buds the dirt was damp and not dry.
died after first season
bought this last year one plant did not grow in grown and the other one grew about 18" and bloomed but after the summer it died and I had it in a large pot in barrier area so it would not die from cold and this year it did not do a thing I just hope everything I bought this year does not die.. Roberta's are on probation with me. How do you get a refund anyway? :( :(
What a waste of money and time...just got about six inches tall, all summer two tiny blooms on each..then took inside in the fall..died...
I bought these plants last year nothing happened with them. one of the plants i threw out, the other one i kept. see what happens with the plant i kept. all i got were leaves and no flowers, flowers last only a short time and then drop off. also i had trouble with the johnny jump ups. plants were all wilted when i received them.
Not what I had hoped
I bought these last year and waited...and waited...and WAITED and every single time a bloom would begin to come out, the next day it had dropped. I have a green thumb and can make almost everything thrive and grow, but these I had no luck with. So disappointed!
I kept waiting for that sweet scent and the flourish of flowers, but nothing. As a matter of fact, the plants barely grew at all! :-(
Fortunately, they stand behind their products and I was promptly refunded.
I have other Roberta's flowers and have been happy with them, these just did not work out even though I did everything the instructions stated.
Fragrant & Beautiful
Bought these in 2013. Came wonderfully packaged and in good shape. Both took off quickly. Blossoms were SO fragrant. Did great all summer. As usual, I managed to kill them over the winter. I'm terrible with indoor plants. I've already ordered another set for 2014 and will try to do better next winter with them, but I would still buy again and again they were so lovely.
