Brand new for 2021, Garden Pleasures is a wonderful collection of Dianthus caryophyllus. We have picked six of the best of this new 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.
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 a collection of 18 plants, 3 each of the following varieties:
- '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' bicoloured salmon pink flowers with a edged in pink.
- 'Queen Helene' rich coral pink flowers.
- 'Blushing Bride' bright pink flowers.
Deadhead to prolong flowering. Make sure soil is well drained and avoid winter wet which can be harmful to the plant.
Pinks can be planted out in spring when the soil is warming and can be planted directly into the ground around 20cm (8in) apart, or into a container.
When watering, avoid wetting the foliage to reduce the risk of mildew.
A light clip after flowering to remove the spent flowerheads will keep the plants compact and extend their life - cuttings can be used to propagate new plants.
