Introduced in 2021, Garden Pleasures is a wonderful collection of Dianthus caryophyllus. We have picked six of the best of this variety to bring you a display of colour and fabulous fragrance to brighten your borders.
Instantly recognisable, garden pinks (Dianthus) are one of the hardest working and reliable plants that you can get, producing masses of fragrant ruffled flowers. Blooming reliably all summer - often well into the autumn months - they will fill your garden with vibrant colour and their sweet clove-like scent on warm evenings.
- 'Lady Margo' – Bicoloured magenta flowers with a contrasting white edge.
- 'Rosy Rosalyn' – Bicoloured ruby red flowers with a contrasting pink edge.
- 'Aunt Agatha' – Bicoloured deep burgundy flowers with a striking white edge.
- 'Mrs Coho' – Stunning white flowers.
- 'Queen Helene' – Rich coral pink flowers.
- 'Blushing Bride' – Bright pink flowers.
Garden Pleasures is a range of compact garden pinks that are heavily perfumed and will produce large, double blooms in a range of sumptuous colours throughout the summer. Ideal for growing in pots, and perfect for sunny beds or patio pots and containers. The richly-coloured blooms are held on sturdy stems above neat cushions of slender, leaves, making pinks not only a fabulous garden 'doer' but also superb and long-lasting as cut flowers for you to bring in and enjoy indoors, where their intoxicating scent will fill your rooms.
- Supplied as 6 x established plants in 9cm pots, ready to plant out.
- Prepare the ground well, removing weeds and digging in some compost or well-rotted manure if your soil is not already rich.
- Plant approx. 20cm (8in) apart to allow them room to grow.
- Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
- Dead head when flowers fade to encourage more blooms.
