Auld Sod Blarney Castle and Irish Field of Shamrocks
I ordered my Blarney Castle and Field of Shamrocks the first time it was on air. I got it to show not to grow. I have enjoyed it every year with other Irish things.
I give it 5 stars.
Still waiting for the seeds to sprout. They had an expiration date of December 2013 so I'm concerned about that.
No the seeds probably won't grow but at the price now its cute to decorate with, you get an actual part of the blarney stone and seeds from Ireland so :) give it a go. Its around a foot long by half a foot wide and the details are good. I'd recommend getting the coasters as a more usable item.
Love It, Love It, Love It.
I absolutely adore this Blarney Castle and stone. It is just an adorable display. I planted the seeds today, and will wait to see what happens. Even if they don't grow, I'll just enjoy looking at my " little piece of Ireland." Thanks.
Seeds expired. Nothing Grew. Disappointment
Got this earlier this year. Opened in Feb and planted with my grand-daughter. The pack of seeds expired in Dec 2013. But we were hopeful. Nothing grew even though we were diligent with the directions. Very disappointed. Why sell a kit with expired seeds???
QVC did do the right thing and gave me my money back.
out of date seeds-wouldnt grow
why would qvc sell out of date seeds,didnt grow,,wasted money and embarrassed..it was a gift
I HAVE ORDERED TWO OF THESE, AND I LOVE THEM! GRANTED, I COULD NOT GET THE SHAMROCKS TO GROW, BUT I HAVE PUT THE KISS OF DEATH ON MANY A PLANT, SO I JUST PUT THE IRISH SOIL IN THEM, AND LET THEM SIT OUT. THE ARE WONDERFUL, AND I LOVE HAVING THEM.
I adore this!
I found this item adorable. Granted the shamrocks may struggle in time as it really isnt deep enough to support thier roots. I put my shamrocks in a pot and they are doing great. I went with pretty green sand and some special glass stones in this to sit on my Irish table just as a cute collectable. So cute!!
not worth the price
i received this about month ago. ordered it for my wife. the seed that were enclosed appaently were bad. the have not done anything. no sprouts or anything. and yes the are in a sunny location. watered regulary but still nothing.while its a cute little setup i dont think it is even close to the price.
Sad To Watch Die
My son got this for his 13th birthday. He got it all set up the same day, did everything it said to do, and within a few days he had little plants coming up. They grew for about a week then slowly started to die. So he started all over again and the same thing happened. He tried for about 2 months then gave up.
Simply does not grow! Terrible!
Terrible disappointment! I purchased this for my father-in-law, he is a very careful and thorough man. Despite his efforts, the shamrocks simply did not grow. Very embarrassing, as this was a gift.
