Re: Cottage Farm & Roberta experience?

Looks like it's too late to order CF from QVC now...have to wait to order in fall if anyone's interested in trying them.

Re: Cottage Farm & Roberta experience?

I've ordered from Cottage Farms twice, and have been pleased by the results.  Roses were true to label but the hydrangeas, though doing very well, are apparently a reversion.  It most certainly could be the soil, and they are blooming heartily after just one year, and survived a harsh winter, so I'll take it.  Hard to complain about hyrangeas in bloom.  I love spontaneous acts of nature.

What do you mean by reversion of the hydrangea? Woman Surprised

Re: Cottage Farm & Roberta experience?

Hi - I guess I mean they are not true to "type".  These things have been so hyped and marketed and overbred, that I just wonder if it's all sustainable.  Clearly, the plant form on two of the hydrangeas is different, yet the blooms are remarkably similar.  I remember when "Blushing Bride" came out  - the "all white" macrophylla started to morph into pinks and blues after about two years.  Pretty, nonetheless, but not what was advertised.
