Dianthus barbatus Sweet Black Cherry-Plants

  • Catalogue Code 5112-4104
  • Pack Contents: 24 Large Plug Plants

One of the very best Sweet Williams with dark velvety blooms and a spicy scent.

This is a must have bedding plant, spectacular on its own or interplanted with tulips. They also make very good cut flowers with lots of flowering stems on each plant.

Sweet Williams are remarkably hardy, surviving even harsh spring weather.

Plant into good garden soil in sun or semi-shade.

Large Plugs (24 cells per tray) - Are strong enough to be planted into in baskets or containers or into their final position provided the temperature is warm enough and there is no risk of frost. If not they will benefit from potting on into 7cm/3in pots to allow them to grow on before planting out. Plants will be approximately 7cm/3in from base to tip.

Height 60cm/24in.
