    Hard-working yet charming, these cottage garden classics will produce their spicily scented flowers over a long period throughout the summer - and often continue into autumn. Great for sun-baked spots and tolerant of chalky soils.

    Each collection contains 1 of each of the following varieties, all supplied in a 9cm pot.

  • Dianthus 'Doris'A popular modern pink with clove-scented, double, pale pink flowers with red centres from early summer through to autumn. The fine, silvery green foliage makes a lovely frame for the masses of flowers. Grows to 40cm.

  • Dianthus 'Gran's Favourite'One of the most popular varieties of pink, with flowers that look like raspberry ripple ice cream. The white petals have a contrasting deep purple-red edge with a similarly coloured splotch at their base. Grows to 50cm.

  • Dianthus 'Haytor White'Pure white petals, which look as though they have been clipped with pinking shears, form showy 6cm wide flowers that appear for months on end from early summer. These have a good scent and make excellent and long-lived cut flowers.

  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole. Apply a balanced fertiliser in spring and deadhead to prolong flowering.

When purchasing the 2+1 dianthus collection is it better to plant these three of a kind grouped together, or one of each kind in 3 groups?

Hello, There are no hard and fast rules as it just depends on the effect you are trying to create - a blend of colours or more solid blocks.
