Roberta's 6-pc. Snow White Tuberose Collection with Fertilizer
Not what I expected
I planted as the instructions told me and only 2 of the 6 ever grew. I was VERY disappointed.
I have had the tuberose for over 7years and they just propagate more and more each season. I live in PA.and they never fail to bloom each season with the most sweet, sensuous, fragrance. I water them frequently and fertilize with Robertas products. When August is approaching, they start to bud and the beauty starts again. In late fall I place my containers inside my shed until it starts to warm outside the following year. If I can get them to bloom in the cold northeast, then anyone can do the,same.
Got these for the first time last year. Took a long time to sprout despite being in a south facing location. Once they did start bloomimg though, the blooms were ok, not big and lavish, but it was the first year. The scent, however, spread across the front yard and was heavenly! Hoping for a better crop this year!
I can't believe these grew!
I live in Las Vegas and I thought these would be a long shot to grow in this heat, but THEY DID! Only one bloomed, but the flowers lasted weeks. The scent was amazing, and I am impressed that they all sprouted and I got one bloom.
NO BLOOMS AFTER 2 SEASONS
Summer of 2013 I planted these in a large container in full sun following all the directions exactly and a tremendous amount of green leaves grew, but not one bud. I dug them up and stored in garage over winter. Summer of 2014 (this past yr.) I went a step further researching what kind of dirt was best and used that to again plant a few of these bulbs in a different container in full sun. Cared for them all season and very slowly some green leaves grew, but again no blooms or buds at all. I was so disappointed that I have not bothered to dig them up from that pot, altho' I did move it to a protected outside location on the long shot chance they will come back this summer. In reading other reviews it appears to me that if you live in the West of the US they don't bloom well. I live in the Seattle area. Reviewers living in the East #NY, Conn., etc.# said they bloomed well. I wish Roberta's would address this issue in the upcoming garden shows on QVC because I have no idea what went wrong and I have been a gardener for many years.
I planted as directed,,,6 bulbs----5 grew---3 got one bloom each,,,quite disappointed ,,,central California customer ,,not gonna buy anymore ,,,,sorry,,,
Never Bloomed! :(
As beautiful as these looked on TV, the flowers never bloomed. There was never even a hint of a possible bloom. Very disappointed in this purchase.
Not a single bloom
Followed all the directions on planting but not a single bloom...colossal waste of money!

When I saw these beautiful blooms on TV I was so very excited and ordered immediately. I planted them in the biggest pots to support their growth. Well all I got was GREEN stalks not even one bloom and its September in the Midwest. They were suppose to bloom from July to Oct. Well I guess I have one more month to go.....but I doubt it.
So very disappointed.
Very Pleasantly Surprised!!
I am not a gardener and have had little luck with growing plants. I was captivated by the presentation and purchased the tuberose bulbs. I planted these in two large pots outside. I watered them and didn't see anything for the longest time. Then green shoots came up and continued to grow and fill the pots. One flower spike and I was thrilled. It smelled wonderful. Now it is Sept. 14 and two more spikes are growing. Sooo, this is my experience and skepticism was put to rest for me. Will take in for the Connecticut winter and look forward to next summer's blooms.
Hope somebody reads this!!!
I was just looking thru my purchased orders and saw this and clicked on it. Even tho they are of course sold out - it is late Aug. the page is still up to review.- I received these in late May and kinda ignored them for quite a while- got busy as perennial planting is my HOBBY (lol), & couldn't find time to plant them - just kept dampening the brown paper bag they were in. Finally, I put them all in the biggest pot I could find & was really NOT very hopeful. But I just watered them with everything else, and fertilized occasionally. Now the pot is SO FULL--yes it is all just very tall green leaves...wondering if I should have split them up even tho they said you could put all in one big pot. Remembered reading they would bloom late... I KNOW there are more than 6 bulbs in there but that I only planted 6! Looked in this little jungle and see some buds starting...a little nervous, but thinking they're on track but they're just packed so tight!. Also, FYI anyone who HAS bad luck don't be afraid to call Roberta's directly. They are great and WILL replace next spring. You can even wait till next spring to be sure they survived the winter and call them. They are great about replacing things us "professional gardeners" mess up! I love dealing with these people they r serious about flowers. So never planted these bulbs b4, but am excited after hearing everyone say how great they smell! And if for some reason I only get 1 or 2 flowers, I know Roberta's has got my back. The Lamium -I recommended it- is one of the bests purchases I've made anywhere. It's a ground cover that blooms all season and has interesting striped leaves, & just spreads like crazy. (It likes shade.) Also the little pamplets they send are really lifesavers for reference if you find yourself having a problem w/anything! If you think something's overpriced but really "need" it go ahead, you will usually see it was worth every penny. They make it a no mistake deal; buying from Roberta's is a win-win!!.
After seeing the number of blooms on the Spring Garden Preview, I immediately ordered these Tuber roses. I was so excited. For the 6 tubers ordered, I have ONE bloom. It's so fragrant, but a huge disappointment for the price I paid. One bloom. I can't recommend it to anyone, since the number of blooms (even with the special rose formula, applied as directed!!!) did not meet the promise of the advertisement. Sorry, QVC, this was a miss, instead of a hit.
