Chabauds Giant Carnation Seeds (Mixed Colours) are a mixture of colours and flower forms. Spicy fragrance and a lot of colours make carnations perfect for the border or cutting garden. Beautiful double flowers are well presented on solid stocks in bright red, snow white, sunshine yellow, and intense scarlet. Plants mature to a height of 45 cm.
Fall Planting: Sow seeds in late fall and cover lightly with compost, then mulch (remove mulch in spring)
Spring Planting: Best method. Start indoors 8 weeks before the last frost. Sow seed 3 mm deep in a soil-less mix and keep at 21 C during the 14-21 day germination period. Grow on under lights at a slightly cooler temperature, then harden off and transplant to a sunny site in the garden after the danger of the frost has passed. Space plants 30 cm apart in the garden.
