Roberta's 8-pc. Tread on Me English Creeping Thyme Collection
Dead and gone!
The plants never made it, they died - a total waste of my money.
Most are dried, brown, and grayish white and two are pale gray green dried leafs. Hens and Chicks I ordered falling apart and two have mushy green laying on the dirt or stuck to the plastic wrap. no roots seen. Just awful tried both Cottage Farms and Roberta's results are not like they say and replacements didn't even get the same number of plants back.
Five star for arrival.
I can only comment on the packaging and looks of the shipped plants. As another reviewer said, the packing was great and color coding is a plus. Mine looked healthy and I will hope they continue to survive. As I planted them I looked at all my other Roberta plants from last year and am amazed at the growth of those plants. I have confidence these will not disappoint either. I have had only one dead plant from Roberta's in the past (water lilly) and they gave excellent customer service for that problem. Thanks, Roberta's.
Very Poor Quality
I received my 16 plants. Only 3 were very healthy looking, 5 were sort of "iffy" the rest were dead, with dead roots and little black flies buzzing around the soil. Needless to say I asked for a return and I am NOT bothering to get a replacement. I also ordered a set of the fig plants - they don't look too good either, but I'm going to give them a chance. This does not seem to be up to QVC standards. I am very disappointed with both Roberta's and QVC.
Six plants were DOA
I ordered two sets and six were Dead on Arrival, two others went to the garden in the sky soon after. The others are planted but only the white ones look like they might survive. Not a happy gardener!
Was so looking forward to getting these to place around my sidewalk. When I opened the package only 2 of the plants looked healthy. Placed all of them in a planter until I could plant outside. Have kept them watered but only 2 have survived. Very disappointed; will be returning to Roberta's.
My plants are all in the ground for 3+ weeks and even with the up and downs of the weather they are alive and well. I was disappointed to see they may not bloom until next year but at least they are all alive. Hope my mail man does not Tread on them too much.
A little disappointed
I ordered two sets of the tread on me english creeping thyme collection when it was offered as a today's special value. I just received the plants a few days ago. For the most part they look healthy with the exception of 4 of the plants. It will be a miracle if they make it. I feel like I'm wasting my time planting them though. We'll see. Last year I ordered the catmint from Robertas. They are doing well. This year I have flowers. I am undecided as to whether I will be ordering from Roberts again with my experience from the creeping thyme that I just received. I guess out of 16 plants 4 of which are duds that isn't too bad for mail order plants.
Doin' Fine!!--Great Plants
I have grown a creeping vareiagated lemon scented thyme for years, so maybe I have the advantage of experience over some of the other reviewers.
I repot right away if I can't plant when a potted plant arrives.
I put them in 4 inch pots immediately.
Thyme, under the best of conditions, can dry out quickly, so I watered immediately.
My plants have added about 2 lnches in diameter. I hope to get them in thier permanent location soon.. Thanks Robertas and QVC for such a fine offer.
0 for 3 Tries
I bought these and shared with 2 of my neighbors. Not one of us has had any success getting these to grow. They just seemed to shrivel once put into soil outside & that is here in California where just about anything grows. We are all very disappointed. It's thyme for a refund.
This Thyme Is Sublime!
I have just received my two orders of Tread On Me English Creeping Thyme. I have ordered plants from Roberta's and Cottage Farms for years. I have NEVER seen such well packed plants ... EVER! Every single plant (all 16) arrived in perfect condition! They were so carefully wrapped and each variety was color coded by pot color. The cardboard wrapping design was ingenious. Simply amazing. I can't wait to plant them!
Thank you Roberta's for a very impressive delivery!
So glad I ordered these
I ordered two sets and they arrived in perfect condition. Had to wait a week before planting but prepared soil and got them in the ground. It's been a month now and they are beautiful healthy plants. Chipmonks dug up four of the plants but I got them back in the ground and they are doing well. Am ordering another set today. I've ordered from Roberta's and Cottage Farms for over ten years and yes, some plants do not do well, but both companies have replaced them when requested. I will continue to order my plants thru QVC. I TRUST QVC.
