Re: Phillip Watson's TSV 6 SunPatiens

The plants on QVC are grown professionally in a green house.  I learned a long time ago they don't grow here at 7000 ft.

This offer of 6 SunPatiens seems to be a good value to me. Last year I paid $4.95 per plant at my local go-to greenhouse. I am still going to buy local, because I want to get my eyes on the actual plant before I buy.

 

I hope people note the variegated foliage on the "Tropical" choice. I tried that once and didn't like how it clashed with the color of the flowers. But that might just be me. Phillip seems to like the look.


I've bought these for about 10 summers now and never had one plant not make it-they are absolutely gorgeous and dependable and very hearty and long- lasting.

I cancelled my order when I found out they are not bee-friendly.  That's my goal for the spring and summer ahead, plants and annuals which appeal to bees.  I don't care if they are beautiful to humans, we need to support the bees.

Re: Phillip Watson's TSV 6 SunPatiens

I ordered the sunpatiens when they were the TSV because I have not been able to find them here the past two years. I have no idea why they have been so scarce. 
My plants arrived today, a couple of days ahead of schedule. I have never ordered plants online so was a little skeptical....I am so pleased! The packaging was perfect..the six plants are perfectly intact, with healthy green leaves and were even slightly damp, so no brown leaves. Now, to keep the squirrels from digging them out of the pots.....

Re: Phillip Watson's TSV 6 SunPatiens

Does anyone know the item number on this? I purchased them directly from the vendor this year, but I was curious and want to read the reviews. Mine are growing ok, but not blooming as much as prior years (some plants have not bloomed at all). I am still hopeful that they are just late bloomers!

The item number is M90834. I ordered them from QVC, and I'm still waiting for something to happen.  They have been planted for four weeks, and do look like they are growing but have no buds or flowers....not sure when to expect that.  I love these flowers and hope they do well.

Re: Phillip Watson's TSV 6 SunPatiens

@Kallena Thank you for the item nuimber. It does seem like the sunpatiens have very mixed reviews this year.  Here's what my sunpatiens looked like a couple of days ago:

They are doing a bit better now.  

 

Here is what my sunpatiens from Phillip Watson looked like last August:

These were a little different than this year's but I am hoping for the same results.  I ordered these in 2021 as well and they did the same thing. These are different than the impatiens I have seen in garden centers.  They can take full sun and they practically are like trees by the end of the summer.  But in prior years, they same in little plastic pots like they do in garden centers, but this year they were in little test tube things. Some of the plants barely had any soil, it was harder to plant them this year.

 

I hope yours make it and start blooming!

Re: Phillip Watson's TSV 6 SunPatiens

After not being able to find Sunpatients anywhere the past couple of years I ordered the TSV. They are blooming and beautiful, especially the fuscia ones...but they are slow-growing...which is good for me...am hoping they will be full and thriving after my other annuals have fried from the sun.

These have not been available at Home Depot, Lowes, or some other garden centers here for a couple of years; they sellout the day they arrive.

Re: Phillip Watson's TSV 6 SunPatiens

I ordered these and 4 of them are doing good.  Lost 2 of them???

 

I have not seen SUNpatiens in the local stores.  My yard gets full sun and the 4 are doing well.
