Roberta's 8-piece Jumbo Begonia Collection w/Fertilizer
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!!
big & beautiful
I ordered these a few years back & they were beautiful. lasted 3 years but slowly started to loss them due to black beetles in the pots that I had in my basement. I plan to re-order them because I loved them so much & the neighbors always commented on how big & colorful they were. Might try taking them out of the soil & storing in peat moss over the winter to avoid those black bugs.
I ordered this same item two years ago, and had no luck. I am a lover of gardening and planted these in pots. I never had one come up. I thought I would write a review, since it seems I was not the only one who had no luck. Wish I had remember last year to contact Roberta's but that is the price you pay for ordering plants online. It is the risk we take! Maybe Roberta's should send all of us something else in replace of these?!?!
I rec'd ten of these begonias. They all did not bloom, but the ones that did were stunning. They were the largest blooms i have ever seen for a begonia. The colors were beautiful.
Like I said they did not all bloom, but I did save them and have put them out again this year. i wait to see what happens.
Don't waste your money
These did not grow well. I followed all instructions and planted them in part shade/part sun north side of house. 7 of them became plants but the flowers were much smaller than shown on TV, like regular begonias. They didn't have very many blooms, though those blooms did last a long time. The plants didn't have a nice "look" to them - spindly and far from "jumbo". I didn't bother removing them from the soil to overwinter since they were such a disappointment. I love gardening and have been happy with every other flower purchase I have made from QVC but these were an epic fail.
DON'T PLANT DIRECTLY IN THE SOIL
I planted these directly in the soil, not in pots. They took forever to come up. By the time they bloomed it was fall.
NO BLOOMS AT ALL
bought these 2 years ago - got some foliage, but never bloomed. Roberta's replaced them but again - NEVER BLOOMED - save your money - not worth the trouble nor the cost!
Save your Money!
Purchased the set, one sprouted and bloomed. At least it was the red one.. Don't know the answer for failure..... and I am a gardener!
NOT WORTH THE MONEY
I have purchased this product twice; thinking maybe that I could get a second set to grow. No such luck. They never even sprouted. Sad, because I was looking forward to a flower for more shaded areas. Will not try a third time. I gave it a 1 star; only to write a review.
