Planting

The wonderful Dianthus plumarius grows wonderfully in the garden. Plant the cottage 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 down. Water immediately after planting. Dianthus plumarius grows well in a spot in full sun, or partial shade in porous lime soil.

Care

Water your cottage 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 Dianthus plumarius flowers on a regular basis to prolong the flowering period. Add plant food regularly during the growth period to encourage a continual flowering all summer long.

Extra

Every double flower of Dianthus plumarius looks like a miniature rose! The petals are elegantly fringed. The flowers spread a delicious scent. The colours vary from white and very soft pink to dark pink and deep red. The grassy leaves are blue green and remain rather low. These evergreen leaves are decorative both before and after the flowering and so cottage pinks stand wonderfully along the edge of the border.
