The wonderful Dianthus plumarius grows wonderfully in the garden. Plant the garden pinks as soon as possible after receiving them in the border, in a flower bed or in a flower pot. Loosen the soil well and plant the root balls of the garden pinks at the right depth in the planting hole. The top of the root ball should be just below the ground level. Fill with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting. Dianthus plumarius grows well in a spot in full sun, or partial shade in porous lime soil.
Water your garden pinks regularly so the soil around the roots doesn't dry out. Do take care that the soil doesn't become too wet, especially in the winter. Remove the dead flowers on a regular basis to prolong the flowering period of the Dianthus plumarius .Add plant food regularly during the growth period to encourage a continual flowering all summer long.
