DETAILS
Carnation (Dianthus Caryophyllus Chabaud Mix) - Carnation seeds are perfect to grow in the cutting garden. There is no better known flower for cutting than a Carnation! This Dianthus Chabaud Mix has tall, double, fringed flowers that have a lovely spicy scent. The foliage is clump-forming and blue-green in color. The Carnation flowers are white, pink, red, yellow, or multi-hued. Dianthus Caryophyllus Chabaud Carnations grow as a perennial in frost free zones, or grow as an annual where winters are cold. Grow Carnation flower seeds in borders, planters and rock gardens.
GROWING
For Carnation flowers the first year, start Dianthus seeds indoors 10 - 12 weeks before the last frost, planting 2 - 3 flower seeds per pot or cell. Cover the Carnation seeds with no more than 1/16 inch of soil and keep the seeds moist until germination. Move seedlings to a cool, bright place to continue growing, then harden the Carnation plants off in the garden a week or two before the last frost. Where winters are mild, Carnation seeds may be planted outdoors spring through early fall. Removing spent flowers encourages continued blooming.
