Reviews & Community QA

Cottage Farms 9 pc Scarlet Flame Carpet Phlox Groundcover is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from We shall see! These plants arrived in a very timely manor and they looked "EXACTLY" like the picture of the plugs on the site. I don't understand why customers were thinking that they were going to be something huge... the picture reveals the smaller size of these plants. I am hoping , like the other reviews that these Phlox will spread and bloom just as shown in the mature picture, with TLC. Bottom line... I got exactly what I paid for and what was shown on the site and for that I"m a very happy gardener!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from In Bad Shape I ignored the other reviews and ordered these anyway. After reading and rereading the reviews I decided to cancel the order but it was too late. So i received these yesterday and the roots and the green foliage was all dried up in very bad condition. Well, I planted them hoping for the best. I will give them awhile and see what they do, if anything. I was dispointed in their condition because I have gotten so many other Cottage Farms plants and they have all done well. If they live and grow I will change my review.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Outrageous I think it's an insult to sell these tiny plants to any one. I do believe you think the customers are gullible. I won't be purchasing any more plants.I'll go to my neighborhood garden center to purchase my plants.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible So incredibly small it will take about 3 years to look like this picture. Not worth the money. Go to your local garden store to get one bigger at the same price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not purchase this item again I was extremely disappointed in the size of the plant. I can purchase #1 pots at a better price. I did plant them and I'll see what happens. Ugh on the purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pretty weak For the price I would have expected plants that were much further along in their growth cycle. Very small plants that will take weeks to grow in. Not worth the price

Rated 3 out of 5 by from so sad They showed up and I was so happy. I opened the box and was sad at how small they were. I planted them and within days half of them died.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from worst purchase ever I ordered these and was really excited to get them. When I opened the box it was all dirt with 1 or 2 dead looking weed things. I was soooo disappointed. I tried planting them anyway and with lots of love I still have nothing. I couldn't believe the shape they were in when I received them. I have bought tons of plants from QVC and never received anything like it. I'm only giving it 2 stars because QVC refunded me without any hassle. :(
