The unusually large flowers are borne profusely above low, bushy mounds of grass like foliage from late spring throughout summer, and also attract bees and butterflies.

The most economical way to purchase your plants. Securely rooted, strong plants in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown on before planting out ready to flower. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 2.6cm deep x 1.8cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.
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 sun 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.
Delayed my review until plants flowered, overall a bit variable, some bloomed well others not.
Thank you for your review. Our apologises that overall the plants have been a bit variable and hope that we have dealt with this matter to your satisfaction.
I received very healthy plug plants and every single one of them survived being transplanted and potted on. They have all now been planted out in their final destinations and some are starting to flower. They look so pretty and I’m happy that I got them! Will be ordering plenty more plants in the near future.Thank you TeamBrookside!
Packaging was great, and plugs inside were very good quality. We have potted them on and they are super plants which are flowering so well. This company was recommended to me and i'm not disappointed! Will be back next year for more plug plants.
Nice healthy plants which were very well packaged and arrived in perfect condition. All the plugs are thriving and growing on really well. I will be buying my plug plants from Brookside nurseries in the future due to their excellent quality.
