Roberta's plants have also failed me.  It is much cheaper and have much sturdier and prettier plants at area nurseries.  There is no safe planting in my area until late April anyway.

I buy local and when I am ready.  I don't do it up like I use to.  

But I must  say I get tired of the garden shows like I do the exercise shows.  One or two shows is enough for me.  I know a lot of people really into gardening and it is a nice hobby.  

Netflicks here I come.  Lol

Re: Roberta’s TSV - February 1, 2024

I am disappointed in today's TSV. I wish QVC would find another company for the TSV. My Roberta's order last year was the worst delivered product I have ever received. The near dead undersized plants came in a box full of loose dirt. None of the plants survived. I order plants from various companies and have never had received an order in that bad of shape before.

I live in SC, on the coast, and have never had luck with Roberta's. I think there are lots of places where they would thrive but the plants they sell do not do well in our heat. I depend on local garden shops, not big box stores, and a couple mail order companies that are within a 3 or 4 state area. I hope they bring all who purchase many years of beauty!

I am a huge gardener but these I can get at the grocery store, same size, with flowers! Not a bargain. Roberta's plants have not done well here- 

I do purchase some of the other CF offerings because it's super rocky here and I cannot dig deeply, so the smaller plants they offer are perfect, when nurseries usually offer 2 gallon sizes or larger- 

I did get a knock-out Orange Glow bare root rose from Q last year, and that thing has taken off!

If (and it's a big if) I wanted to get flowers I'd just drive 5 minutes to Lowe's  and get them. They already have them available where I live. I'm not a gardener. In fact I hate yard work of any kind. If I wanted fruit trees, Costco has them for planting now.

Re: Roberta’s TSV - February 1, 2024

One of my most favorite things to do is going shopping at a garden center every spring. It's such a relaxing thing for me to do---looking at all the beautiful and colorful rows of baby plants & picking out the ones I want to bring home. I wouldn't give up this annual activity by purchasing plants online.

We have never had any luck with anything from Roberta's and my husband has a green thumb. 

it's a pass for me, plus it's too early to think about gardening yet.

I appreciate all the comments here and I agree with those who say we can easily buy at our local garden centers or garden department at Lowe's or Home Depot.  I only watched a little of the video, but I heard the Roberta's rep say that these are "winter hardy perennials".  I was wondering if the experienced gardeners here know if Gerber Daisies are "winter hardy", in general, or is this just true of this Roberta's variety? I live in the northeast, so it is important to know if the ones I might purchase locally would survive the winter.  

 

I have never purchased plants from QVC, but I love Gerber/Gerbera Daisies!

 

Thanks for your help!
