Dianthus 'Festival Mixed' (Garden Ready)

Sweet William

Hardy Perennial

  • The fast-track to a hassle-free garden - just plant, water and enjoy!
  • Quality plants delivered to your door, hardened off and ready to plant out
  • Fully-grown, super-robust, healthy plants

Our garden ready plants are selected for garden performance, straight from the nursery. We send them to you 'green' ahead of flowering (but please note some varieties may show a few blooms), which means plants will establish quickly and all their energy goes into producing better roots, so they produce more flowers throughout the season.


We're bringing strong scent to the autumn garden with this vibrant mix of Sweet Williams. Dianthus 'Festival Mixed' brings together a selection of traditional solid shades and bicolour blooms to catch the eye, all picked for their sweet clove-like fragrance that will fill your patio with perfume this autumn.

Winter hardy and tolerant of summer extremes, this hardy mix comes into its own during the cooler autumn weather, picking up the baton just when your summer performers are starting to lag behind. Even the first frosts won't stop this top-performing mix, so expect colour and scent well into winter. A must have for extending the season of colour in your garden. Height and spread: 25cm (10").


Culinary note: Use the clove like tasting petals for adding to cakes, either for flavour or decorating, suitable for soups, salads and sauces too. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Pot up Sweet William plug plants and grow them on in frost free conditions for transplanting into borders and containers later on. When all risk of frost has passed, and plugs are fully rooted into their pots, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Plant Sweet Williams in beds and borders in fertile, well drained soil in full sun.

Feed and water Sweet William plants regularly until they are fully established. Deadhead faded Sweet William flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced throughout the summer.
