Pot up dianthus plants into pots of free-draining compost, and grow dianthus on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outside. When all risk of frost has passed and plants are well grown, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Plant dianthus outdoors in moist, well drained soil that has been enriched with plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost. Choose a position in full sun.
Feed and water regularly until dianthus plants are fully established. Deadhead faded dianthus flowers frequently to encourage more blooms to be produced.

  1. disappointing.

    By Gillian Smith 02-04-2016

    Just received my postiplugs and what a sorry sight they are! Very small amount of growth and that's pale and feeble! I think I'll be lucky if they actually survive! Very disappointed!

  2. disappointed

    By Gillian Smith 02-04-2016

    Just recieved my postiplugs and what a sad little lot they are! I think I might end up with less than half of them surviving. Tiny amount of growth on them and that's very pale and feeble looking.
