Books On Dianthus Growing

Carnations and Pinks For Garden and Greenhouse: Their True History and Complete Cultivation, by John Galbally with Eileen Galbally, Timber Press, Inc., The Haseltine Building, 133 S.W. Second Avenue, Suite 450, Portland OR 97204-9743 (ISBN 0-88192-382-6)

This book, by two world-famous British dianthus authorities and breeders, is the best book on the subject of growing carnations and pinks indoors and out. Some of the terminology is unfamiliar to North American readers ― “John Innes compost,” for example, which is unavailable in the U.S.A. ― but this is a trifle compared to the enormously practical experience that went into the creation of this book. John Galbally is now dead, but his wife continues their work together. Highly recommended.

This is a list of the 38 companies offering Dianthus plants & seeds in Dave’s Garden PlantScout as of October 15, 2010, organized in alphabetical order within plants and seeds. The number of items for sale, reported to DG PlantScout is included to facilitate in the identification of large sellers of Dianthus products. In some cases this list duplicates companies found in Rand B. Lee’s list. It recommended that in addition to searching the vendor’s website for “Dianthus” you also search for “Carnation” as there are a few cases where the genus is not identified.

If you identify any errors or omissions please send me a DM.

PlantScout Dianthus: http://davesgarden.com/products/ps/search.php?search_text=Dianthus&submit=Search

Retail Plant Sources:

Company: Allwoods
Location: London Road, Hassocks, West Sussex, BN6 9NB England
No. Items: Very large list of Dianthus.

Note: Unfortunately for those in North America, Allwoods only ships to locations within the UK and EU. Unless you have a friend in the UK or the EU, who is willing to drop ship on your behalf, you will be out of luck. The Dianthus list is still fantastic and should be reviewed on the chance that the same Dianthus can be obtained from other sources.

DIANTHUS RETAIL PLANT & SEED FROM NON-TRADITIONAL SOURCES

Retail Plant Sources:

Retail Seed Sources:

Note Posted January 5, 2011: Sometime after the beginning of November 2010 the stores “CraftSeeds2u” and “Seeds2yous” ceased to do business. I will leave the entries for the two stores up for a few months in the hope that something changes but it doesn’t look promising. The eBay seller had the largest collection of Dianthus seeds on the Internet, that I know of.

Note: Until November 2009 CraftSeeds2u did business as Seeds2yous on eBay and then a non-eBay company was formed under the named Seeds2yous and the eBay company changed its name to CraftSeeds2u. While many of the Dianthus seeds are identical, CraftSeeds2u on eBay has a larger selection and that that is the organization I have done business in the past with and have been very satisfied. It is recommended that your search both websites using “Dianthus” and “Carnation” and include titles and description in the search.

Company: CraftSeeds2u
Location: Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia
No. Items: 64
Offering: Dianthus Seeds
Comment: Unusual collection of Japanese Dianthus cultivars, with breeding history, and other hard to find Dianthus.
Website: http://stores.ebay.com/CraftSeeds2u
