Cottage Farms 6-piece Cascade Groundcover Golden Roses
I will never ever buy roses especially mini roses from anyone else but Cottage Farms. I have killed so many roses bushes in the past but Cottage Farm roses have nine lives. They have survived my black thumb. The best kept secret is the fertilizer. Since using it the roses have just taken off.
Dead, dead, dead
I didn't mind receiving small plants that were wilted. I followed the instructions,and I know what I am doing as I have the nicest front yard on the block. My plants are dead. They are so dead that I can't even find them to pull them out and send them back to get a refund. I will stick to the nurseries and other stores for plants. I will not be buying plants from QVC anymore.
Bunnies are feasting!
My rose plants arrived in excellent condition and looked even better the next day! Been in the ground a week now and are already starting to bloom. But they are not rabbit resistant and I hope to save them by wrapping a bit of human hair around each one as that worked in previous years on my marigolds. I wouldn't gift these because they will require special care to survive the feasting bunnies.
Within 3 days of arrival there were buds! Love them
Happier than with the lavender roses...
The golden roses did better than the lavender. They grew long stems and had flowers. The flowers grew as a singular on a stem and another on a different stem. Still have flowers. Though I liked them, I wasn't really thrilled.
These have taken off like crazy !! In constant bloom and filling out every day. I'm so very happy !!
When you do the math...add the cost of the item plus shipping each rose costs $5.54
You can't go wrong when you pay less than $6/rose and receive such healthly plants.
I bought these roses thinking I could plant them in the ground but alais all i have
are roots on my side of the condo.. so I put one plant per pot... I've have 3 beautiful
blooms already one within the first 2 weeks I sure hope them don't mind climbing up a trellise... got the yellow ones.. I don't see much of a thorn, well the kind that hurt anyway.. canot wait.. considering some hydraygreas too... we will see... they do have a
spot in the ground they can go..
thanks.. have the lavender from robertas it didn't get much of a fair chance but doing well... I didn't have money for pots and soil so they had to wait it out in a bucket.
boy that smells good...
I received my mini ground cover roses a few days ago. I have been gardening long enough to know healthy plants when I see them. I was pleased when I opened the boxes and found that they all looked healthy. I immediately planted them and can already see just a few days later, that they are growing and looking very well. I think these roses are going to make a lovely addition to my gardens. Thank you Cottage Farms!
Not sure about cottage farms
I too had stopped ordering from Cottage Farms because the plants arrived teeny tiny and usually in shock. These roses ALL arrived with black spot leaves. Two dropped their leaves immediately when taken out of the box. They are all planted and we'll see if they make it. I think it's really important that when they are do the live shows they show the real size of what is being sent and not just the finished product three years down the line.
Wow! These are shipped seedling size!! I hope I'm around a few more years to enjoy them!! I had stopped buying from Cottage Farms because they arrive in bad shape either wilting or half dead. These I hope I can rejuvinate. For the money you pay the size is disgustingly small, all of them makes up one regular size plant at the nursery.
received the 12 plants today with care one of them has already some buds on it. Waiting to see whether they will thrive or not.It looks healthy when I got them.
