Comments about Product: Ii originally ordered 3-months of flowers to be sent to 3 different families. When I got confirmation the next day it indicated 4 orders instead of 3, two going to one family. I immediately called to correct it and instead of changing it back to 3 orders, they cancelled it and only sent to two families. I only realized the mistake a couple days ago and reordered, but this individual should haven been able to see flowers by Christmas, one that's doubtful. Disappointing.
Comments about Product: This was a gift for my grandmother from my uncle after I suggested she might enjoy it. I was very embarrassed with this gift. The flowers were small and the folage spindly and pathetic. The only good thing was he was originally going to get 6 months worth and I would have been ashamed for 6 months instead of 3. My only hope is the bulbs when planted will look better.
Comments about Product: I received the Three Months of Flower Bulb Gardens as a Christmas gift. I was so excited by the gift, but my excitement has turned to disappointment.
The pictures on the website show all of the bulbs blooming at the same time. So far, that hasn't happened for me. Some of the bulbs bloom and fade away before others even begin to bloom. At most my arrangements have had 5 flowers at any given time. Some of the bulbs didn't bloom at all. I would never send this product as a gift.
Comments about Product: I ordered these flowers after my mom requested a year's worth of flowers, but I didn't pay the price to do that and instead ordered 3 months of flowers. I wish at the time, we could have ordered first 3 months, 2nd 3 months, 3rd etc. Although I realize the cost would be more to order individually not order a year's worth at once, but if you could have then maybe my 3 brothers could have ordered 3 month's worth each and then Mom could have had a year's worth.
Comments about Product: Recipient sent me a picture and said it is growing nicely. I sent the 3 month version so don't know yet if the other months will be as timely or healthy. Stay tuned! So far, so good.
Comments about Product: My older mom absolutely loves this. She talks about how the bulbs are growing daily. It helps her get through the winter months and gives her something to look forward to. As beautiful or even more beautiful than the picture.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
