Cottage Farms 6-Piece Miniature Rose Collection
Worst purchase ever
I gave these roses one star because there is no option for no stars. They never got more than one rose on each plant. I waited for the spring hoping that they would come back. They are all dead. I am one week to late to complain to cottage farms. If you want good quality plants stick to Robertas. All of my orders from them were as promised, and have come back year after year.
6 piece minature roses from cottage farms.
Received these very tiny plants and planted them according to instructions. Fertilized them with Cottage Farm rose food. They have been out a little over a month and are still as tiny as when planted. You have to look carefully to not step on them. Very disappointed. They will never make a rosebush before fall.
Just rec'd yesterday & they look absolutely health & in perfect condition. Matter of fact, two of the roses already had little roses on them!! Planted them as soon as they arrived. Can't wait to see how they do this summer. Will let you know. Great packing job and just love them already.
received my mini roses in healthy green condition. Packaged very secure. Two plants had large buds on them already. Immediately took them out of box, rolled the plastic covers down, watered and place them in a sunny window until the unusually cold weather passes. All according to enclosed instructions!! The lily's I purchased from cottage farms last year are already 7 inches high. Again I followed enclosed directions completely, including fertilizing. will updated when my mini's grow big and are full of flowers.
I ordered these last spring. Planted each one in a large pot and put on my patio in full sun. They started blooming and growing almost immediately. The colors are magnificent. I trimmed them back this fall and put them in the garage. I hope they survive so that I can enjoy them again this summer.
What a waste of money. These things arrived so small, and dead looking. Still planted and just wasted my time doing so didn't last two weeks. They sent me more and same thing happen. Took longer to receive they arrived in worse condition. Just gave up.
Hoped for the best
Of the six plants I received, two were on the way out. I had ordered them for Spring 2012 . I found the other four to be extremely fragile with dry leaves. They received the required amount of sun and water and by September I had only one left alive. Now, I hoped I have saved that one which is dormant and spending the winter in my barely heated office. I usually have a very green thumb so I don't know what happened here. I've bought other plants from Cottage Farms and they have done well. My care or the plants--which is at fault I just don't know. So I will not buy any more miniature roses from any source.
Beautiful mini roses in all different colors
I was hesitant, but patient, I planted all and waited. I have been counting the buds, now I can say that I have 1-5 blooms on each of the 6 plants and 1-8 buds. All are very pretty colors. The growth is quite slow so I called Cottage Farms after two weeks but they said that as long as the leaves were green then to be patient. I am unfortunately having an issue with my beautiful buds and I have to get a insecticide/pesticide which I know very little about. I have the ugliest bug it looks like a cross of a worm and a caterpillar but way uglier, makes me queezy. And here I just live in the city and have them potted so I didn't think that I would have an issue but I do. I can't wait to eradicate it so that I can get back to enjoying the beautiful flowers. I used to count the buds everyday and now I don't even want to go near them, next time I do it will be with something strong!
Best Roses purchase ever
Received miniature Roses about two week ago.The plants were in good condition.Only 1 had yellow leaves.Put them in yard the next day.2 of them have little roses.They all looking good.
Not a good purchase
Recieved these plants 10 days ago and planted them as directed. I recieved them and they all had yellow leaves and in very poor shape.. Very small plants. I am trying to save them and hopefully they will grow. If not i will call qvc and I am sure they will take care of it. They are not a good value.
mini roses! dead roses!!
I recived thes roses today.and Iam so....upset! upset!and mad!!!!! I order this a two set and they both are the same they arnt any frash plant at all. thes are all yellow and brown.I dont know what to say about this Iam a speach less but i plant tham all. hoping they comeback to live.........
I ordered these roses and when they came in they were all dead. I re-order them again and they still came in the same way as the first one. I also order hygendra and the same thing happen to them.. Personsally Cottage Farm is way over rated. I will never order flowers from Cottage Farm again. I would not recommend this to friends or family.
