Description

The scent of these very long-lasting carnations is INCREDIBLE, truly powerful, utterly delicious and clove like, just like a classic old-fashioned Malmaison carnation. I grow them for picking in a line in our veg garden.

Care Tips

Feed and water regularly until established. Deadhead to prolong flowering. Make sure soil is well drained and avoid winter wet which can be harmful to the plant.
