Carnations fit into two categories.... Greenhouse or Garden. Both types are perennial, with garden carnations they are hardy and can withstand staying out all year round whereas greenhouse types require winter protection. Both types are grown in similar ways. They are easy to grow and can flower in their first year if growing from cuttings. Either varieties can be used for the show bench. Both carnation types require the flowers to be supported and our tried and tested plant supports are ideal. As with any flowering plant feeding is essential to keep them performing at their peak. Both varieties can be grown for showing but it is recommended they are grown under the protection of glass to ensure the blooms are kept undamaged by the weather/wind.
