Dianthus 'Memories' is an improved version of the popular 'Mrs Sinkins' with better growth and blooms along with a more compact growing habit. Covered in fully double, pure white flowers highlighted with a cream centre, 'Memories' has an outstanding, spicy fragrance which really does capture the essence of summer.
Fully hardy in UK gardens and also suitable as a short-term houseplant, 'Memories' is 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 ideal for growing in the garden and tolerant of heat and drought, the blooms are produced above neat mounds of evergreen leaves and are suited to a sunny spot at the front of borders or grown on the decking patio pots.
Easy to grow and perfect for bringing colour to beds and borders plants are fully hardy and excel where the soil is well drained, such as on a rockery or in a gravel garden.
Growing to around 25-30cm, this beautiful garden Pink may repeat flower later in the year after its initial flush of colour in May and we supply a collection of 6 plug plants ready for potting up and growing on.
Grow in a well-drained, soil in full sun. Plants prefers a soil rich in organic matter such as well-rotted manure or compost, and benefit from an application of a balanced fertiliser in spring.
