Roberta's 6-pc. Snow White Tuberose Collection with Fertilizer
Wait Until Year 2
Last year I planted 3 bulbs in the ground and 3 bulbs in a pot. One sprouted in the ground but never grew. Only one sprouted and bloomed in the pot but the fragrance was great. This year nothing has sprouted in the ground, but I looked in the pot and there are 5 separate stalks!! I can't wait for them to grow and bloom. Just be sure to use your fertilizer and you will be a happy camper the second year!
Have Patience, They will Come!
We purchased these several years ago, and our soil continues to challenge us with welcoming new plants. I planted these, the first year got a little response, but did not want to give up on them, so I replanted them in another place, and they have continued to perform for several years now. They are hearty, yet so beautifully white and fragile looking. Their fragrance is wonderful. I place them in an area that gets moderate water, moderate sunshine and they never fail to perform. Just be patient and they truly will show up for you! Very lovely!
These took a while to sprout and grow and when they did I was so excited! They smell delicious and the flowers last a long time. Love them! One of my favorite flowers.!
Had mine over 5 yrs now
I got my tuberose from Robertas well over 5 yrs ago and have them in pots which I bring into the garage for winter. I've divided and given away many plants and these are outstanding. My husband and I get so excited every year when they do bloom (usually August in Indianapolis).
No blooms - just green
I bought these last year to plant in pots in southeastern Ohio. I had the pots in full sun as directed and kept the soil moist. There was a lot of green leaves, so I thought they were doing well. Was excited to see the first flower shoot appear. That was it though. The flowers never opened and there were no more shoots. I saved the bulbs in the garage, so I'll try to plant again this season, and hope for better results. So far - just disappointment.
Be patient and you will reap great rewards
I can't remember if my bulbs came from Roberta's as I bought in 2008, so this is just ADVICE for newby's. I got nothing but green the first season. BUT when I dug up my bulbs to store for the winter, they had tripled, so the next year I had a lot of bulbs to plant and then they started blooming. Over the past years, I have given away bulbs to friends and neighbors, yet I still have a medium plastic box under the guest bed, full of bulbs to plant this spring. Have left some in the ground and they seem to do fine, but just don't want to take a chance with all and it takes less then 30 minutes to dig up and wash off for storage. A wonderful flower
I am not sure this product is really worth 4 stars, but they get it because of the heavenly scent! I planted all the bulbs in two large pots, in perfect conditions, here in Florida. It took several months of diligent care, but eventually I had 4 of the 6 blooming. They lasted several months, but i think I was expecting more. maybe if I transfer whats left to the ground they will do better. They made it thru the winter here, still tall and green. I am hoping for another batch of flowers this summer. Tuberose is my absolute favorite scent- every perfume I own has it at it's top notes!
An Absolutely Beautiful Scent!!!
I bought these plants in the spring of 2013. I live at the Jersey Shore. They bloomed in early September. The wait was worth it. My balcony smelled like a perfume counter. The scent was delicious! The scent is generous, and the beautiful white blooms lasted a couple of weeks. This is truly a special plant. I will be ordering more this year.
Only 2 flowers
I bought these last year and nurtured them like babies. Got lots of green foliage but only 2 stalks (flowers). So very disappointing! Not the first time Roberta's has not lived up to the hype. No more purchases from them.
I planted these bulbs 1 per 6" pot like the directions said. I was happily surprised when they all filled the entire pot with tall leaves and stems. About 1/2 of them bloomed, but the pots were in different areas with different amounts of light. I didn't even use the fertilizer bc I forgot. At the end of the season, I cut them down and moved them to the shed. Can't wait to pull them out again this spring. I expect they'll do even better as I plan to pay more attention to their location. They smell great, and their height makes them stand out.
MOST BEAUTIFUL FLOWER ON EARTH!!!!!
I LIVE IN ZONE 5 IN UPSTATE NEW YORK AND I WAS REALLY PLEASED WITH THESE BULBS! I RECEIVED THEM IN MID-MAY AND PUT THREE BULBS IN EACH 12 INCH WIDE POTS. PUT THEM IS DIRECT SUNLIGHT IN SUNNIEST LOCATION AND WAITED AND WAITED BUT CONTINUED TO WATER THEM FAITHFULLY WITH THE FLOWER MAGIC. SOON THE GREEN SPROUTS APPEARED....AND FINALLY THE BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS. IT IS NOW THE MIDDLE OF OCTOBER AND THEY ARE BLOOMING BEAUTIFULLY. THEY ARE INSIDE NOW AND MY HOUSE SMELLS BEAUTIFUL - LIKE A TROPICAL FLORIST!! DON'T BE AFRAID TO GROW THEM ANYWHERE IN THE USA JUST WATER FAITHFULLY AND USE THE FLOWER MAGIC IN YOUR WATERING CAN!!! HOPEFULLY THEY WILL REST SOON,ILL LET THE LEAVES DRY OUT AND THEM CUT THEM DOWN SO THEY CAN BE READY FOR THE NEXT SPRING SEASON WHEN I WILL WAKE THEM UP WITH SOME FERTILIZER AND PUT THEM IN A SUNNY WINDOW.
THANKS ROBERTAS FOR THE BEAUTIFUL FRAGRANCE!!!!!
I ordered the tuberoses and received them in early spring. I planted according to directions and it's the end of the summer and I have yet to see a flower. Will not recommend.
