Product Information

Compact and beautifully formed, Dianthus 'I Love You' is a striking garden pink with its narrow grey-green leaves and masses of delightfully scented flowers all summer long and into autumn.

The buds open into rich dark pink double blooms that are deeply ruffled. As the flowers mature they change colour to lighter pink and finally white, always accompanied by their sweet, familiar fragrance. Such a wonderful addition to any garden and happy in full sun or light shade, in flower beds and borders or containers, and the perfect long lasting cut flower. One of the RHS 'Plants for Pollinators', bees and a wide variety of insects will certainly appreciate you planting this hard working, evergreen perennial in your garden.

Particularly effective when planted in groups, very easy to grow, fully hardy and undemanding, Dianthus really are a must-have. 

Growing to about 45cm and supplied as 12 plug plants for potting up and growing on.

Top Tips

  • 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.
  • Dead head faded blooms to ensure flowers right up to the first frosts.

Care Information

  • 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 theyíll quickly recover.
  • If you canít 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). For great results, we recommend using our Windowsill Planters or 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays.
  • 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.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry as they donít 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 (8in) 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.
