Botanical Name: Dianthus caryophyllus

Annual Carnations are easier to grow than you would think, and well worth the little extra effort. This mixture of large double flowers comes in a lovely range of colours, many of which are sweetly scented. Give them a try! A half hardy annual, which flowers in the year of sowing. Prefers a sunny position.

Plant Height: 45cm

How To Grow

Sow in trays of seed compost. Just cover the seed with compost, keep moist and maintain a temperature of 15-20C (60-68F). Germination should take 10-14 days but may be erratic.
