Dianthus Corona Blueberry Magic stands out with its outstanding, bicolour blueberry blue flowers presented on compact plants during summer. The unique flowers fade to a darker eye. The unusually large 5cm diameter flowers are borne profusely above low, bushy mounds of grass like foliage from late spring throughout summer, and also attract bees and butterflies.

General Growing Advice

Using a good quality multi-purpose compost, pot up your plugs into 10cm pots. Once your plug plants have been potted on and labelled, water them in well and grow on for around 5-6 weeks.  Water once the compost starts to dry out.

Add a slow release plant food like Miracle-Gro Slow Release All Purpose Plant Food  to your compost which will give extra nutrients for strong and healthy plant growth.

Keep plants frost free until mid/late May and then harden off before being placed in their final positions when the risk of frost has passed in your area.

Water as necessary giving a liquid feed such as Neudorff Organic Plant Feed as instructed throughout the growing season.

***For packs of 20/40 plug plants gently remove the small plugs from the tray by pushing up from the bottom using a pencil.

Dianthus Specific Advice 

Plant it in full to Partial Shade in fertile, well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil. Avoid soggy conditions and overwatering, as these may cause stem and root decay. Regular removal of faded flower stems encourages continued flowering. Dianthus Corona are great in beds and borders and make a delightful addition to containers.
