No other flower has such a wide range of colour combinations, and with their heady perfume they add distinction to any garden. It is with great pride we offer them to you.
Being completely hardy, border carnations have no need of a heated greenhouse, they do best in an open, sunny, well drained position. The cultural requirements are simple and therefore anyone with a garden can grow them. Grown in an unheated greenhouse for exhibition, they make an interesting and rewarding hobby with many winning on the show benches! If growing for exhbition they will require dis-budding to give bigger individual blooms, otherwise you can leave all the side buds to develop and they will flower more like a spray carnation. They generally flower from May to July and will require supporting our tried and tested plant supports are ideal for this.
We hope to have a few available during 2017, so watch this space....
