Roberta's 3-pc. Bounty of Blooms Victorian Peony Collection
We ALL can't have black thumbs
To quote another review... "I also bought these peonies last year, 2014. The total growth of each plant for the season varied from 3-5 inches. Had some leaves, of course, no flowers." As per instructions I cut them back to ground level... we shall see if they do better this year.
I bought these last year and they did okay for a few months, now they are all dead.
I was so excited to have these in my yard for years my mom really liked these as do I so I got them in her memory. wish they would have done better.
Not as advertised
I have other peonies that I bought at locally for less than a 1/4 of what I paid for these. The grew so fast and bloomed the first year and it "scared" me. These from Roberta I've had for 2 yrs and they haven't grown nor have they bloomed. Go figure! They have grown to the same height both years: Still skimpy leaves and no blooms.
Still have hope!
I also bought these peonies last year, 2014. The total growth of each plant for the season varied from 3-5 inches. Had some leaves, of course, no flowers. I always blame lack of growth on being in the state of Montana. However, most of the other reviews sound like mine. I still have hope that these peonies will make an amazing recovery this year and become what was promised. Definitely wasn't what was advertised, though. I would love to have those peonies! Have the best of luck ordering lilies, daisies and petunias from Cottage Farms and Roberta's. Others tend to be iffy. Where I live in Montana does make a difference and since we are the last area to receive plants, they are not always in that great of shape on arrival. With that said, I absolutely love watching the QVC's gardening shows as they get me excited about spring. When I have previously called about poor plants, I have always been given a refund. So, I will keep ordering in hopes of having flowers as advertised! They honor their guarantee every time! That is why I am giving two stars.
not one plant grew
All I can say is not one plant lived what a waste of money, time, and love I put into them .............go back to your local nursery
I have not had anything I bought from Roberta grow.
Never got one bloom
I got these last year and planted in pot. I have at least 50 pots with plants in my yards. Do a lot of container gardening and know what I am doing. Used fertilizer and watered. Got a small plant with some leaves and never even a bud. I have lots of problems with Roberta's plants growing. I live in New Orleans. Cottage Farms plants always thrive for me. Will not buy anymore from Roberta's. This is not the first or second or third time I have had such poor results with their plants. Done with Roberta's.
Died once it got warm
These are my friends fav flowers so got these as a birthday gift for her last year and she was very excited about them. They initially sprouted through the soil and got to about 6 Inches tall but then it all went downhill when the heat started. She followed directions to a tee and they still died. Really disappointed.
Only grew about 5 inches
I planted these about the end of May 2014. I only got 2 plants out of the 3 and they only grew about 5 inches high and no stems of flowers. I will see if anything comes up 2nd year but if I don't see anything growing by May 2015, I will be calling Roberta's for some new ones and try again.
I bought them last year. Roots barely visible when I received them. Planted them promptly.
One came up but barely. We'll see if that one comes up this year. Very disappointed
A waste of time and money!
I rarely write a bad review, but I too ordered these last year ( Spring 2014), one died 2 months after planting, and the other two lasted until late Summer when they surprisingly dried up and died. I can't understand why this happened since I regularly watered & fertilized them, and used Roberta's Spray and Flourish. I have almost an acre of property with several gardens, and these were the worst performers. I'm not even going to bother requesting replacements, .... why waste more time and effort on them. They were very disappointing. I should have requested a full refund after the first one died. Shame on me for that. It should also be noted that last year Roberta's would not replace a set of Liatris bulbs for me (the Liatris plants did not come back in the Spring, I presumed it was due to a tough winter). I contacted them thru their website and a Roberta's representative emailed me back and stated they were not responsible for weather conditions so they would not replace all of the bulbs, however, they did agree to replace half of the of bulbs. So, buyer beware. Just saying.
Save Your Money
They never grew. Total waste of money- very disappointing.
Roots didn't look like ths
Ordered this same plant package last year. Roots I received were no where near size they are showing on air. Also did not have "5-6 eyes" as advertised. They did grow - one grew about 6 inches. Other two grew little bigger. Small amount of green foliage. NO blooms whatsoever. Hoping for more year two but just want to set people's expectations.
