This garden season I grew carnations. I purchased my seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds.
I was very pleased at how well the carnations did and will plant them again next year.
They smelled wonderful. The candy cane striped carnation smelled like cinnamon.
I picked the following bouquet just before our last kill frost. The carnations opened in a few days. I was so happy to enjoy one last bouquet.
Still blooming in November! They are a very hardy plant and flower. I did not cover them during a few of our early November frosts. They continued to bloom.
A get well bouquet from The Little Garden That Could featuring carnations.
Petite and Sweet
The fragrance of the carnation is lovely. I can not put in into words.
An easy flower to grow from seed. It is a slow growing flower. If you are set up to start seeds indoors, I would suggest to start indoors. I did have to wait until August for my first bloom.
Well worth the wait! A very hardy plant and flower, as it survived several frosts.
