How to grow:
When growing outdoors seeds of carnation should be sowed about 15 to 20cm apart either at the beginning of spring or the beginning of autumn. Once sown simple cover the seed. Carnations prefer to grow in a sunny area of the garden that has very good drainage. Ideally the soil should be slightly acidic to neutral (pH6 to 7) and of a rich nature. 
If you plan to first grow carnations (Dianthus) indoors as seedlings before later transplanting then the process should be started about 9 or 10 weeks beforehand. They take about two or three weeks to germinate at a temperature of 15 to 20 degrees Centigrade. They can be transplanted out into the garden either in the autumn or before the last frost of spring.

The flower family of dianthus has several characteristics such as: hardy, herbaceous, perennial, and producing bright, fragrant blooms. Dianthus is a genus of about 300 species of flowering plants that can also be used for ground covers since many of them spread wider then they get tall. The name Dianthus is from the Greek words for God and flowers. Its genus can include Carnations, Picotees, and Sweet William. Dianthus flower seeds are easy to grow and prefer full sun, moderate climates, and rich, well drained soil. Perennial Dianthus is often evergreen or semi-evergreen. The dark green foliage stays evergreen in winter months except in northern climates. The evergreen foliage and the long flowering season allows for interesting year-around displays of foliage in the winter and flowers in spring, summer, and fall. Dianthus are used in containers, mixed plantings, cut flower gardens, scented gardens, butterfly gardens, borders, and can be used in mass plantings from flower seeds.

Dianthus flower seeds are easy to grow and they produce a wide variety of colors and forms. Dianthus seeds can be started indoors or outdoors in the spring.
