Description Carnations Photo Gallery
Soil: I planted them in a mix of sandy soil with garden soil.
Sometimes I think it is good to cut off some flowering buds to encourage flower size. My carnations put up a big show during early spring, turning the flower bed shades of pink and red. Their fragrance can be smelled from inside the house. However, the flowers only come with single layer of petals (I thought I had ordered the multi-layered variety). It is either missing something or it just has way too many buds (or maybe the flowers have mutated into single-layer).Other than that, my carnations have proven very hardy and easy to grow. One exception is that its bushes resemble some nice cool beds for my dogs and my small white carnation was crushed by the dogsĄ¯ weight and it never came back again. Now they are too large to be crushed by the dogs, the red and pink ones have been blooming every year.
