A Carnation flower arrangement is a popular choice for occasions and holidays because they can easily be dyed. I have seen green ones for St. Patrick’s Day, blue ones for a baby shower, and even orange dyed ones for Halloween.
They are a very versatile flower that can be used for all sorts of reasons.
Growing Carnations is simple. Start to plant the seeds in the soil at the beginning of spring. They only need to be about 1/4 of an inch into the ground. Cover them with soil and don’t let them get to wet.
When you plant these flowers make sure they have full sun and well-drained soil. They don’t do well in soil that is too wet. Only water them when the soil is too dry or when in a drought.
Once they begin to grow they can reach about 18 inches high. You can cut these flowers and bring them inside and place them in a bouquet. They make a great centerpiece and they live for a long time.
If you choose not to cut them and to just let them grow in your garden, they will grow well throughout the summer.
I think that everyone should plant Carnations in their gardens. Not just because they are so easy to grow, but also because they add some real beauty to your garden. They look great and they smell really nice.
