Roberta's 2-piece Summer Baby Lilac Collection
I got these plants last year. One plant is doing better than the other but both bloomed. I can't wait to see what they do this year.
Doing great - Smell wonderful
I got these 2 years ago and put them in planters by my back door. They look and smell great. They do not get very tall (which is a plus for me) but they got very bushy and produced tones of flowers
Died first year
I purchased this duo last season. The plants were VERY dry and wilted when I received them but planted in full sun anyway. They did not grow an inch. I have not contacted QVC or Robertas for a refund or replacement, but I will try. I agree with some of the other reviewers these need to be planted in a pot the first season as they are fragile plants. I enjoy robertas items but I will never plant them again without rootblast (this is the only way ANY of them survive).
I got these last season. They were very little and fragile when they arrived, but I planted them in pots on my deck anyway. They grew all summer long and produced many little flowers. I was shocked at how much they grew and how lovely they turned out. Can't wait for them to come out this year!
Disappointed And Replacement Not Honored
Very scrawny when they arrived but I planted any how. Watered and fertilized. Died first season. Requested replacement the following Spring. I got bulbs instead. If you are going to buy these I suggest growing in a small pot first then place I'm the ground when they are a bit heartier.
Roberta's does not honor their warranty
This died on me, Roberta's sent me Lillie's to replace them without asking me first. I have a severe allergy to lillies and get very sick from them. I called them and told them it was totally unprofessional to send something different, that is not what Roberta's advertises. Roberta's sent me an email stating they would send me the correct replacement this year but they will not answer my emails.
I am a loyal qvc customer and spend a lot of money with qvc. I challenge qvc to question Roberta's on their false claims about their guarantees.
Do not recommend
They arrived in a timely manor, however, never grew beyond about 4 inches tall last summer. They are very scroungy and I'm not sure they have even made it through our comparatively mild winter. Very disappointed. I will be contacting Roberta's about it since it is less than a year.
I purchased these last spring, they were very dry and tiny and not quite what was described. Near death as a matter of fact. Wanted to give them the benefit of doubt and planted them. One lived. I am in the processing of trying to get replacements or a refund.
cute, healthy, blooming!
These were tiny when they arrived. Too cold to plant outside, so I kept them in a sunny location. They needed a lot of watering. Finally planted them in pots outside. They grew and grew and grew. They took a lot of watering outside also. Now, in August their first year, they are about 18 inches tall, bushy, and BOTH are blooming!!! They receive sun from 10 in the morning until dark. I planted them using a bag of "garden soil" as opposed to "potting soil".
Not For Sure
I have had these for 3 weeks and they are doing so so. Some days look okay but some of the leaves are turning yellow. VERY TINY plants and was disppointed in the size. If they do not better in a couple weeks I will call Roberta,s for a refund.
I GOT THEM 2 DAYS AGO ,LEAVES WERE DRY AND LOOKS ALMOST DEAD,HOPE I WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED THESE PLANTS WERE NOT CHEAP . I WILL GIVE THEM 1 MONTH IF THEY LOOK LIKE THEY DO NOW,, BACK THEY GO AND MONEY BACK IN MY POCKET AND IAM SURE I WILL HAVE TO EAT THE SHIPPING COST :( PS..... SHOULD HAVE WENT TO HOME DEPOT, I WOULD HAVE SPENT LESS MONEY AND HAD MUCH BIGGER PLANTS...........................
I must state that I am once again very disappointed in Roberta's plants. I have ordered several times over the past few years always hoping for the best. I just received these baby lilacs and the leaves were dry and crushed, and the plants did not survive 2 days. Also, the plants that arrive are never 'as shown' on QVC. Very disappointed in Roberta's.
