Dianthus Barbatus 'Auricula Eyed Mix'
An easy to grow traditional cottage garden plant with a spicy-scent, these lovely Sweet Williams have huge single flowers each with an attractive eye. With low mounds of grass-like foliage, the vivid green stems are topped with dense, flat clusters of flowers with fringed petals in a patchwork colours, dark tapestry rubies, fuchsia, scarlet, purple and white. Sweet Williams make a long-lasting, fragrant cut flower, and are an excellent choice for dried flower arrangements. Place them in the middle ground of the flower border or in containers, mass plantings and meadows.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
