Dianthus barbatus '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.


Enjoy the sweet clove like fragrance of this cottage garden favourite with the minimum of effort. This traditional mix of Sweet Williams combines a fabulous range of pinks, reds and white including solid shades and bicolours for a real tapestry of colour. Dianthus barbartus 'Mixed' carries its large clusters of flowers upon short, compact plants that make superb bedding. Often grown as a biennial, this short lived perennial is ideal for beds and borders. Height: 15cm (6"). 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.

    I was delighted with the quality of the garden ready Sweet Williams I recently received from you. They arrived in excellent condition and it was obvious a lot of thought had gone into the packaging to preserve this. I've commended T&M to all my gardening chums. The Sweet Williams are already in flower.
