Buy Dianthus 'Menorca White' 13cm pot grown bedding - delivered direct by a British nursery: Ideal for hot, sunny spots

This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

    Please note: Once these bedding plants have been ordered, we are not able to cancel or amend the order.

    These strong-growing pot carnations produce their relativey large flowers over a long period from early summer. They will flourish in pots or borders (provided they get plenty of sun) and are more tolerant of drought than many other bedding plants. Grown in individual 13cm pots, these plants are ready to be planted out once all risk of hard frosts has passed.

  • 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.
