Product Information

Compact pot carnations, the Adorables series of Dianthus has been bred to give an abundant display of large, scented, double flowers from spring into late autumn.

With slightly larger flowers than other pot carnations, they are also slower growing, so they stay compact for longer and are smothered in fragrant blooms.

Fully hardy in UK gardens and also suitable as a short-term houseplant, as their name suggests, they're perfect in a pot, where their well-branching growth gives an extended flowering period, and their heady summer scents will continue right up to the first frosts.

Also perfect for growing in the garden and tolerant of heat and drought, the blooms are produced above neat mounds of evergreen leaves and are perfect for a sunny spot at the front of borders and patio pots.

They're easy to grow, fully hardy, and this collection includes 3 plants of the most popular colours each of:

  • Adorable Mel (Orange)
  • Adorable Tess (Purple)
  • Adorable Orphinka (bicolour pink/cerise)
  • Adorable Moonstone (white)

Care Information

  • For most jumbo plug plant collections, the “mini Greenhouse” they are packed in will have a label on the outside, listing the individual varieties inside. We recommend writing your own labels out on receipt!
  • Give your plugs a little attention on arrival - unpack them immediately, and either mist them or stand them in water for an hour - they may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but they’ll quickly recover.
  • If you can’t do this, they can sit in Mini Greenhouses for a week if upright and not too wet.
    We recommend that you leave them to settle for a day somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • When you're ready to pot on, use a good quality, multi-purpose compost, and fill 3-4in pots (7-10cm).
  • Make a hole in the compost with a dibber or your finger, then holding each plug by its root ball, place it into the hole and gently firm the compost around it.
  • For great results, we recommend using our Windowsill Planters or 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry as they don’t like to be left in standing water.
  • Grow on either on a bright windowsill or a greenhouse for 3-4 weeks before potting up into containers or into flower beds.
  • If planting directly into flower beds when all risk of frost has passed, prepare the ground well, removing weeds and digging in some compost or well-rotted manure if your soil is not already rich.
    Plant approx. 20cm (8”) apart to allow them room to grow. Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
  • Dead-head when flowers fade to encourage more blooms.
