Planting Instructions

  1. Timing: Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date or sow directly outdoors after the last frost.
  2. Soil Preparation: Choose well-draining soil with good organic content. Carnations prefer slightly alkaline soil.
  3. Sowing Depth: Plant seeds 1/8 inch deep in seed-starting mix. Keep the soil consistently moist until germination, which typically occurs within 2-3 weeks.
  4. Sunlight: Provide full sun to partial shade. Carnations thrive in bright, sunny locations but can tolerate some shade.
  5. Spacing: Space plants about 12 inches apart to allow for proper air circulation and growth.

Growing and Care

  • Watering: Water regularly, keeping the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Reduce watering once the plants are established.
  • Fertilization: Feed with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season to promote healthy growth and abundant blooms.
  • Pruning: Deadhead spent flowers to encourage continuous blooming and trim back any leggy growth to maintain a bushy appearance.
  • Pest and Disease Management: Monitor for common pests such as aphids and spider mites. Use organic pest control methods if necessary. Ensure proper spacing and airflow to reduce the risk of fungal diseases.

Harvesting

  • Timing: Harvest flowers when they are half-open for the longest vase life. Cut the stems early in the morning when the flowers are hydrated.
  • Method: Use clean, sharp scissors or pruning shears to cut the stems at an angle, just above a set of leaves.
