Roberta's 8-piece Jumbo Begonia Collection w/Fertilizer
living in Miami I was sure it wouldn't take long to see some shoots...I soaked then as suggested...planted them in the best dirt money can buy...the weather has been perfect
but nothing is happening
not the first nub...still have a few days before my return window is up and so I wait
These were slow to start but when they came up they were breathtaking. I have found that soaking my bulbs and rhizomes in tepid water with a little of Roberta's flower magic changes EVERYTHING.... Faster growth and a sturdier plant. I use the Root Blast in my pots also. This year I bought a bucket of it to use in my vegetable garden
These begonias are truly beautiful. They are huge, and they grew abundantly. Love them!
will never buy Roberta's again
I keep letting hope triumph over experience, and order Roberta's plants. Of the 8 begonias,, ONE grew. Same with all the other "will grow anywhere" plants. And, unfortunately, haven't found Cottage Farms to be any better. Guess I'll just stick with the outdoors section at my local Lowe's.
BIG BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS!!
I've had these for two seasons now and just ordered more! They start out slow and late in the spring/summer season but the flowers are exquisite when they finally bloom! They are huge! I have never seen plants like these. Where I planted them, they get minimal sun and yet they have massive multiple flowers! Bright and beautiful colors! I totally love them and look forward to them blooming more and more each year, even in poor sunlight! Can't wait to get the new colors I just ordered in 2014!!!
very easy to grow-just keep the leaves dry and water early in the day.
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.
