Roberta's 8-piece Jumbo Begonia Collection w/Fertilizer
Robertas jumbo Begonia
These were so gorgeous, at first I planted these too deep after 4 weeks. I replanted.
Two weeks later, oh my gosh, what beauty. My mother and I were astonished with their size and color. I'm about to reorder for the second year.
Beautiful and Giant Blooms
I live on the Oregon Coast and have been growing these in pots for many years. The blooms are so large and colors are so vibrant. I dig up the blubs every year and have been using the same bulbs for years. I would highly recommend buying these bulbs.
Not a good buy
I consider myself a fair to middling gardener. I've bought 2 sets of these at 2 different times and only saw 2 flowers. The bulbs didn't come back the next year. I do not recommend thses at all!
easy to grow
I have used the same bulbs for 4yrs. They grow tall and beautiful flower. I get lots of comments on their color and size. In the fall I dig up and but in cardboard box with news paper and store under my bed. I have starts already2 inches high in the box. cant wait for spring. ps. make sure bulbs are dried and cleaned before storage.
Not many actually grew
I followed the directions and only two plants actually grew. Wouldn't purchase again.
Please don't waste your money
If I could have left overall rating a zero I would have - One is being too kind. I ordered the bulbs after watching QVC's Spring day - I was super excited to see the box arrive, I did everything I was supposed to do, followed instructions to a T, and today, Still nothing, just a green stalk which I am not sure is a weed or the flower, so disappointing and a huge waste of money.
I'm really disappointed to find out that I can't order more of these begonias. They're the first begonias I've ever planted, and wish I'd discovered them 40 years ago! They're just beautiful. Each one is a different color and shape, and they're HUGE. 1 Orange, 1 Yellow, 1 White, 1 Red , 1 Pink and 3 variations in shape.
I'm sorry that so many people had problems with them, and just pray that the gophers don't discover my begonia patch. Yes, they're planted in the good old earth--Northern California, Zone 9. I've got to search for this vendor and try to order more direct.
Planted them when I received it. It has been a month and nothing has come up.
Very disappointed. Going to contact QVC and Roberta's. Maybe just a bad batch.
I planted the bulbs per the instructions but nothing has appeared!! Not one sprout.
I was really disappointed & won't buy from Robertas' again.
Disillusioned to say the least ~
I was SO looking forward to having these blooming and beautiful this year but it isn't in the cards as not one of the bulbs sprouted. I'm definitely not a rookie when it comes to gardening and plants but I did read/follow the included instructions to the letter but to no avail. Very disappointed.
I bought these begonias a while ago; planted them over 6 weeks ago and not a one has even a sprout. Was really looking forward to having some pretty flowers. Hope the calla lilies I bought aren't duds too.
Big and Beautiful Blooms!
I purchased these a few years ago and put them in a planter and had excellent results with them.. The flowers were so big and colorful.. The bulbs lasted for about 3 years til I had problems with a neighborhood cat that came and used the planter for her litter box.. I highly recommend these!!
