Carnation Double Striped Seeds
Info: Carnation Double Striped is a sturdy and very popular variety that produces an abundance of stunning double white flowers with Red/Pink fleck. The flowers look great not only in the cottage garden, but also in romantic bouquets. The stems are strong and the plants can grow up to 50 cm tall.
Carnations originate from the Western Balkans and are small perennial perennials. In Central Europe, however, they are mainly cultivated only for one year.
Sowing & care: Sowing starts in pre-culture from March in pots or trays. Only cover lightly with soil, press and keep moist. From mid-May, plant out at a spacing of 20-25 cm. The flowers become larger when the side buds are broken out. Carnations prefer a sunny location and a nutrient-rich soil.
