Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Terri1948 On Jul 24, 2014, Terri1948 from Yorkshire

One of the prettiest, most attractive little Dianthus imaginable!
Our plant was still in bloom when the first frosts came last year.
After a very few weeks recovery it was back in bud in late March and has been full of flowers continually. Now, in late July, I have taken a few spent blooms from it and noticed that it still has many buds still to open. Everyone who has seen this plant has stopped to admire it.
I've taken cuttings and they have all rooted in a pot of sharp sand.
