Dianthus and Carnations – these charming little plants have been cultivated for centuries in English cottage gardens. They are making a comeback these days, being valued for their spring floral display and strong scent. New hybrids are introduced each year and this season sees a whole lot of fine additions to the range.  Numerous named cultivars are available in the ‘Beauties’ range of special pot dianthus, the ‘Odessa’ range of garden pinks and the ‘Sunflor’ range of pot carnations.

All of these delightful garden plants are offered in 14 cm pots and are part of the Blackwood’s own flower brand. They all enjoy full sun, well drained soil and cool climates. Use them to add vibrant colour to the winter and spring garden. Good in pots and containers, but just as effective in beds and borders in the garden.
