Description

This is a very beautiful and old heirloom dianthus  mix from France, which has the sweet and spicy fragrance of clove. It was designed for gardeners who like cut flowers in particular.  It has frilly flowers in a wide range of shades, with long stems and an extremely long vase life. The 5cm double blooms have a small percentage of singles borne above grass-like, gray or blue-green foliage. It blooms late January and February and is best grown as an annual for cut-flower production. If you sow the seeds early enough they will reward you by blooming all summer long.

Sowing advice

Sow in spring, early summer, late summer and autumn.
Sow onto the surface of moist seed raising mix in pots or trays. Cover very lightly with seed mix, as light aids germination. Keep moist but not wet and at approx 15-20 deg C. Germination takes 2-3 weeks
