garden pinks / dianthus
(shipped in 3-5 working days)

This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.
- Position: full sun
- Soil: well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: June to September
- Hardiness: fully hardy
Appearing in abundance throughout the summer, the bicoloured blooms of this low-growing pink provide a long season of interest throughout the summer. Delivered in flower, they will give instant colour to your pots and baskets. When the display finishes you can plant dianthus into alpine beds and rockeries, or use them to edge the front of a sunny border where you will be able to enjoy their spicy perfumed blooms the following year.
- Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole. Apply a balanced fertiliser in spring and deadhead to prolong flowering.
