Roberta's 4-pc. New Zealand New Millenium Delphinium
I purchased these plants last year. They all flowered last year. The plants this year are already six to twelve inches tall, very full. I live in VT and these certainly wintered well.
I must admit these came very well packaged which gave me great hope. I carefully followed the planting instructions although I have numerous plants in my yard so I am familiar with planting. These TINY green sprouts with maybe two leaves each have done nothing. This was nowhere near what they advertised and I can't imagine next year they will even be alive.
Beautiful plants. Performed as promised
I purchased these delphinimiums last year and I waited until this year to review them to see how they would perform. They all bloomed nicely last year. Beautiful blooms in beautiful colors. This year they were among the first plants to start growing leaves despite a very cold spring. They are now much bushier then they were last year. I can't wait for the blooms. To add to their wonder, rabbits and squirrels leave them alone (they've devoured just about everything else!). I have ordered from this company in the past and had some disappointments, but this one is definitely a keeper. If you're on the fence on this one, I say, go for it!
These were ordered last year and they did not perform the way they were advertised. Would not order again.
I have ordered lily variations twice before and have been very happy. This year I purchased these and the banana plants. I planted in full sun as indicated but nothing ever grew. I hoping that something comes up this year because I love the lilies that I received.
I have had success with a few of Roberta's products, however, only 1 of the plants bloomed and just barely. I am hoping for a miracle this spring but based on the performance of the first year, I am not hopeful. If I have success, I will file another review.
broke my heart
The plants came in decent condition. They were meant to be a surprise for my husband who is from New Zealand & he has been homesick. We were never able to plant to ground due to the constant babying needed. Transplanted 3x into bigger pots which boosted growth but only 1 plant bloomed in the late summer. I am hoping after a dormant winter we get a spring surprise...but not holding my breath.
Bought these plants with high hopes in mind but was very disappointed.Only 1 of the 4 bloomed and it bloomed very little.Only got about 8" high.The other 3 never took off.
Amazing color & awesome blossoms
I had to chime in here, these 4 plants arrived a bit too early for me to plant, but they were healthy. Once planted they took a little longer than I thought to get started but once the weather warmed up, these became the focal point of my new flower garden. We had a freeze last week and I hope they come back this spring. I haven't seen any new sprouts yet as told on air being prolific multipliers, but keeping my fingers crossed. I did have to tie them to the fence to avoid them flopping over in the afternoon wind. But I am considering buying another set, since they were such a pleasant presence.
After a couple of disappointments with Roberta's products, I gave in to my craving and purchased these plants. I should have trusted my gut feeling. What I received were 4 spindly little plants that had a skinny little stem with about 3 or 4 leaves. Still, I planted them with great care, watered them as instructed and, no surprise. They died out on me. I'm going to stick with my local nurseries because it's ridiculous having to hover over some little weed-like plants all summer long. Never again. They constantly go on TV and show you these lush, bushy plants but it's not what you get.
Never Took Off
Bought these last year and planted per instructions. Only one survived after 1 month. I asked and received a replacement, but these did not survive the summer. I'm waiting to see if any pop up this year since they are perrenials--but I'm doubtful
The plants arrived at proper planting time for our zone and were in great shape. They're planted in the flower garden and look very healthy and sturdy.
