Dianthus 'Festival Mixed' (Garden Ready)
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").More info
