Roberta's 8-piece Jumbo Begonia Collection w/Fertilizer
Only half the plants grew, but what did grow were lovely.
I was so excited about these and they turned out so beautiful..thank you Roberta's for so much enjoyment!
These begonia are exquisite. They are full of blooms and literally fill a large planter with vibrant colors. Begonias are slow to bloom so I started them in my sunroom as I overwintered the bulbs so I had an early start.
Do NOT waste your money on these!!!
I've grown begonias for years and they were beautiful (purchased from a home improvement store for MUCH less money); however, these are terrible!! Only two of the bulbs even sprouted leaves and then immediately died, even though I purchased even more of the over priced fertilizer as well. I repeat, do not waste your money on these!!!
Still waiting to see a bloom. Poor growth. Only green leaves and all did not bloom.
WOW!! THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IVE BEEN DISAPPOINTED WITH ROBERTAS!! I HAVE BEEN GROWING BEGONIAS FOR MANY YRS, SO I WAS SO EXCITED TO GET THESE INTO MY COLLECTION!!...BUT!! 1, ONLY 1 BULB TOOK OFF!! 7 DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!! 2 OF THE BULBS WERE TOTALLY FLAT ON ARRIVAL,BUT I PLANTED THEM ANYWAYS, THEY DID NOTHING AT ALL! AND THEN I DID WHAT THE INSTRUCTION SAID, I WAITED A WEEK OR SO,AND PULLED THEM OUT AND LOOKED FOR ANY SIGNS OF LIFE..NONE! THEY DID NOTHING, ALL 7 DID NOTHING! ONLY ONE THAT WAS IN THE CENTER OF THE PLANTER,DID ANYTHING! BUT ALL IT DID WAS GROW 3 LARGE LEAVES,THATS IT! I IVE GROWN BEGONIAS FOR MANY YRS,AND LOOKING AT THE 1 THAT GREW LEAVES,ITS NOT GOING TO GET ANY FLOWERS,THERE IS NO SIGNS OF IT DOING ANYTHING ELSE, AND ITS ALREADY INTO AUGUST NOW!! WHAT A HUGE LET DOWN FROM ROBERTAS!!
Not so happy
I bought these 2 boxes of 8 in each and only 6 bulbs are growing. so I am paying about $8. a plant. I won't be purchasing these again. Only 1 is flowering so far and it is pretty though. :(
They never bloomed
Maybe it's just me but I have not had any luck with buying plants online. These bulbs never even sprouted for me. I have purchased several other things as well that I had no luck with.
As other customers I am very disappointed. Planted and also used the Fertilizer - only 2 came up and growing very slowly. It's a shame the amount of money collected for all the purchases and so many disappointed customers. Roberts's should offer some type of rebate!
Didn't come up
I only had about 4 of these that came up; the others seemed to have rot in the pot; would not order these again
I purchased these begonia. I planted them and nothing every grew from them. Very Highly dissappointed
Beautiful Plant IF it grows.
Got 16 of these. Two grew, only in pots. The ones I planted directly into the ground did not grow at all. Nothing. I put four in pots. Two plants were gorgeous by September of last year. Only one of those is coming back for a second year. (I brought the potted ones inside as instructed) That leaves me with ONE out of sixteen.
