Carnations & Pinks

Carnations and pinks are popular, mainly summer flowering, plants in the genus Dianthus. They are fantastic for cutting and their masses of flowers make them a favourite with florists. Add that to the sweet scent which most have and you'll see why they're a favourite in borders and beds too!

Here you'll find beautiful photos from real gardens with great ideas for using carnations and pinks in your garden.
