Cottage Farms 3-piece Unique Climbing Rose Garden
I only received two of the three piece roses. The two were packaged in plastic together and I am disappointed.
So far all except one seem to be doing ok. However, I was shocked with the delivery process as the box arrived pretty badly bumped around and despite the specific instructions on the box was left upside down. I am hoping this is not affecting their growth. I will continue to monitor them closely.
So far so good
I received mine last week robust healthy bare roots planted them immediately in whisky barrel pots all three have red shoots.Ofcourse I live in southern California so plenty of sun.Hope they do well. Just to mention everything I bought from Cottage Farm survived even the puny ones and the second year they are on fire so just an idea time could probably produce better results.
Just Received and Planted
We received these about ten days ago and just planted them last Sunday - which is within the suggested time listed in the instructions. We kept them in the fridge and spritzed them lightly with water prior to planting. They are bare root and should look like sticks when they arrive, and there should be moisture in the bag. Ours were moist upon receipt. After a week, all three have red shoots coming out, which is promising. It is too
soon to rate them, so for now the rating above is because they are doing what they are supposed to do. Roses love FULL SUN, which is the exposure these three are receiving. As time allows I will update their progress.
Two out of three isn't bad so they say. I ordered the 3 rose bush set and so far only two of the roses bloomed, I don't know what happened to the third one. Not one rose!!! Maybe this year will be different. Love the lavender rose.
Not as seen on TV
I purchased these in 2013 with the hopes of having them grow up and around an arbor in the yard.. Arrived looking like dead sticks, red one died right away, yellow one slowly grew but never did climb and only produced two roses for whole summer, blue one was very scrawny with a few branches and leaves and never climbed and never had any roses.. Over all disappointment.. I have a green thumb and usually have really good results with gardening but not with these.. Can't recommend these..
Wow---Unpromising Beginnings---Great Results!
This is the first year I planted anything bare root and when the roses came looking like sticks in a plastic bag, I was dubious to say the least. I ordered two collections of these because I wanted to put one on either side of an arbor. I planted the pair of Angel Face first and within a week both had new growth. Now, about 5 weeks later, they've gotten so many branches and leaves that they've both budded out and I expect flowers shortly. Amazing! I planted the Royal Gold pair at my office a few days later and now both have numerous leaves and are growing fine. The Blaze are both dead sticks at this point and haven't budded out after about 3 weeks, but I'm not worried because I'm counting on QVC to fix it and make it right. I'm sure that any replacements will grow and I'm looking forward to them growing as quickly as the other two types. It might have been the delay in planting as it took longer to get them into the ground. But overall---great purchase!
not what I hoped
This one is not all GREAT, one never did anything one is doing well the other is trying to make it I am hopeing I get two out of three, to hard to return.
Bought these for my father and they came to us bone dry and dead looking and nothing like how they talked about them on tv .. very disappointed bought some other flowers too and they are horrible also ...such a waste of money ... I spent over $200 on flowers and I wish I never bought any of them ... they were a gift because my dad likes to putter when it is warm and he saw these and I thought for sure he would be happy and they just are a huge disappointment:( never again!
not sure yet.
I Received My Roses Last Week And We Still Have A Foot Of Snow On THe Ground And It Is Still Frozen So It Will Be Weeks Before I Will Be Able To Plant Them. I Just Hope They Last So I Can Plant Them. I Think You Need To Keep A Closer Eye On The Weather Around The States Before You Mail Them.
I received these last year and my roses look just like the ones they show on QVC
Bought 2 orders of these. None of them lived to bloom. As stated, wasted money. Would not buy again.
