Roberta's 4-pc. Fat Budded & Bushy Grosso Lavender Collection
Plants arrived healthy an beautiful. Shipping and packing was wonderful ,Could not ask for better plants.
Had them less than 2 weeks ... I think it is too hot here ... two 95 degree days and they're already not making it :( Oh well ... I thought they'd be nice but I don't think I'll have them long at all.
Props To Roberta's!
I received 8 of these plants last night, & was VERY pleasantly surprised when I opened the boxes. First of all, they were packed beautifully! Each plant was wrapped with plastic & had paper & cardboard surrounding each base to keep it moist. Then the plants were securly surrounded by a cardboard sleeve (they couldn't bounce around during the shipping process). The plants were very healthy & green....no dead leaves to remove on any of them. They were perfect, & already smelled heavenly (no flowers yet, of course). I live in the Seattle area, so shipping plants from the east coast normally doesn't go well. These took 8 days to arrive via UPS, & they looked completely fresh & unharmed. Well done Roberta's- I can't wait for these to bloom!
Arrived in two days of shipment
These plants arrived in beautiful condition and they were very well packed ...just as "attagirl" described below. An annomyous review said they were hard to get out....I had no problem. They were very carefully packed and arrived with the soil still damp. I immediately unpacked them and watered them like the instructions stated.
I would not hesitate to order from Roberta's again. Not big plants........but very adequate starters. Looking forward to nurturing them and watching them grow this summer.
As who they would be a perfect gift for..........why not add the option of "anyone"...these would fit into that category but not an option to choose from.
I ordered these plants on 1-28-14. They were shipped on 3-31-14. I received them today (3-7-14). I live in the northwest and it was 74 degrees here today. These plants were beautifully packaged with a set of damp paper and cardboard at the top of each pot and surrounding the base of each plant. Each plant was then placed in a clear sleeve with roots coming from the bottom of each pot. They were then packaged in 2 packs in corrugated cardboard that protected them and kept them from rolling around in the pack and the mailing box. The plants are green, healthy and are ready to be planted tomorrow. They were damp when I unpacked them. I have watered them and they are sitting in my sink. After planting, if they die it's because I didn't take care of them. While I unpacked and watered them they had a very strong scent and yet they have a long way to go to bloom. I'm very pleased and excited.
So far so good
Received these plants about a week ago..a little on the small side, hope they survive. I live in a small California mountain community with lots of snow and poor soil. My only compliant which really isn't a compliant is the packing....the plants were a struggle to remove from the shipping boxes. Glad they arrive in good shape though. Love lavender and by the other reviews I hope my plants are as lovely.
I am disappointed with the plants I received after waiting since January to receive them. One was so scrawny and half dead when it came. The other 3 were certainly not like the picture in the instruction leaflet. I'm hoping that the 3 will live and grown.
My Second Order
I love lavender & have planted several types over the years. Last year I planted this type from Roberta's in 4 pots. They were very pretty last summer even though I rarely watered them. I live in TX with hot temps in summer & below freezing in winter. With winter I forgot about them. We had a terrible ice storm a few weeks ago, everything covered in ice for 2 days. These plants are amazing. They are the only thing in my garden still green, thriving & looking pretty. When I saw them on the show this AM, immediately ordered more for my other pots. Highly recommend.
I live in north Georgia, and my lavender (planted in a half whiskey barrel) looks robust and has filled out wonderfully. Definitely worth every cent.
I LOVE THESE!
These lavenders are quite different from the ones that Cottage Farms offered, but both collections are alive and thriving and these smell so darned good. I just love walking out my front door and these will make exceptional sachets. Love!
Received in great shape
I was very happy with the size and health of these plants. Packaging and quality has been greatly improved this year for all plants received from QVC. Looking forward to many years of beautiful lavender!
Waiting for Buds
These little guys are growing nicely and seem to be very healthy, but they have no buds on them yet. Still, I am happy with them.
