Roberta's 8-piece Jumbo Begonia Collection w/Fertilizer
The bulbs were so dried up when received they were more like rocks. I followed planting directions hoping they would start to show some life but to no avail. Evidently the included fertilizer isn't helping the poor bulbs. Wish I could send them back.
Very disappointed. They were not as shown on TV. They were tiny. I followed directions. Weeks went by and NOTHING! Called and got refund! These flowers were to be the focal point of my garden. Yes... Very disappointed!
Planted a month ago and only 2 seem to peep out a bit by an inch. Weather is normal here...not too much rain, no lingering winter so I don't know. Maybe they can just send 4 out to replace the ones that don't seem to come out and play??
I bought these begonias after watching the promotional video. I am not an experienced gardener so I felt these easy care for plants were right up my alley. When they arrived however, they didn't look anything like the ones in the video! They were small and insignificant. I planted them as per the instructions on the video but to date, I only see one sprout. The others are nonexistent! I am quite disappointed! Not a good purchase
I bought the bulbs and was looking forward to it growing this summer. The bulbs I received were tiny size of a quarter, not like the presentation. If I received the bulbs the size in the presentation, it will probably stand a better chance in growing into healthy plants. Some rotted out and I think one is sprouting. Only thing I can say is that QVC did not make it hard regarding the returns. I appreciate that. Just wanted the plants to grow and look forward to it looking like the pictures shown. .
I ordered these last year for my Mom, who grows beautiful Begonias but these are not good. She planted them according to the instructions and they barely grew. 2 of them rotted & the rest just do nothing. Do not waste your time!
Did not grow
Planted according to instructions in excellent potting soil. Temperature was fine.
Watered as directed. Nothing happened. No growth at all. I will give this jumbo begonia
collection one more week. If nothing occurs it will be REFUND time!
ROBERTAS' JUMBO BEGONIA
RECEIVED HEALTHY BULBS. HOWEVER, THESE ARE NOT NEARLY AS LARGE AS THE ONES SHOWN DURING THE PRESENTATION. MOST OF MINE ARE JUST SLIGHTLY LARGER THAN A WALNUT. that is the reason for 3 stars.
I DID SOAK THEM OVERNIGHT AS SUGGESTED DURING THE PRESENTATION. THIS INFORMATION WASN'T LISTED IN THE BROCHURE; SHOULDN'T IT BE?
IF THEY BLOOM AS PROMISED, I'LL HAVE NO REGRETS!
My bulbs have been planted for two weeks and none of them are growing. I planted them exactly as recommended and not a sign of life! I am not an inexperienced gardener so I would like everyone to be aware that this is not a good product!
The two orders I received were identical. Dried Up and Shriveled up. I soaked them as per directions and planted. Nothing after a month. So I dug up a few to look for signs of life. None! Very poor!!
I bought these 3 years ago, and they are spectacular! Have never had much luck with Begonias coming back, but just pulled my pots out of the basement and with a little water they are already starting to sprout. Looking forward to another season of gorgeous flowers!
Roberta,s need to double check bulbs being sent
This is the third year I have ordered this collection, the bulbs are so small and have no eyes at all. I hoped this year they would have been like what they showed on QVC. I am returning them.
