Cottage Farms 3-piece Unique Climbing Rose Garden
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.
I got this set last spring. I love the roses, and they did climb very well. That being said, the red rose died, but the yellow and purple are so pretty....not really missing the red to much. Long time bloomers, and very show stopping color.
we ordered the climbing roses but they didnt climb. called cottage farms and we received another set that also havent climbed, only 2 ft tall. very disappointed.
A Bad Buy
When my bushes arrived they were very puny with couple or few stems but
I planted them with hopes they would be vigorous growers. It was a pipe
dream on my part because not only were they weak and spindly, the flowers were very small and two of the bushes were not the color they were supposed to be. I had a total of two flowers on two of them and one on the lavender one for the entire summer..
What a waste of money and time! No more.Maybe my summer in Georgia was too hot. I would suggest that people who respond about their results with your products enter what state they are from to get a better idea of what to expect.
I was very disapointed!
uuuuhhhhhh not quite
these were beautiful on tv, but i've had them for 2 yrs and they haven't grown much less climbed. i wanted them to adorn my shed, but they didn't grow. And I can't get rid of the rose rust mold. When they do bloom, they're beautiful. but.........not holding my breath.
DO NOT BUY!!!!! I ordered 3 different things from this company last year and they were all of poor quality and looked nothing like on tv. These rose bushes, 2 lived, 1 died immediately. The yellow one was the only one that seemed to grow and that was skimpy. The purple one was the dead one and the red was a dud also. Not due to gardening novice, I have purchased and had beautiful roses from local stores and other companies. Got a butterfly tree for my mother in law that she lied and kept telling me it was gorgeous but when I saw it, I was like, this is a 30 dollar tree? Locally the butterly trees were twice the size and less money at the home improvement store. Next the petunias, I was lucky to see blooms the size of quarters. I am telling you that the plants they are showing on tv probably have been growing for 10 years. I usually do not do bad reviews but I was so excited about these and went crazy ordering plants - will not ever do it again from this company. If you see these bad reviews, unfortunately THEY ARE TRUE!
