How to grow Dianthus?

Plant in well-draining, alkaline soil that will receive at least 6 hours of sun. Water the base of the plant when the soil starts to dry, and avoid watering the leaves to prevent mildew. Apply a slow-release fertilizer every six to eight weeks, and do not mulch the soil. Some varieties of Dianthus are self-sowing, so deadheading is extremely important to reduce volunteer plants and to encourage additional blooming.
When do Dianthus bloom?
Dianthus flowers bloom in early spring and summer, but many dianthuses will rebloom throughout the gardening season if you cut flowers off as they fade.

When should I plant my Dianthus?
To get the best out of your Dianthus, you should plant your flower in February or March when the soil has thawed from the winter but is not too hot to hinder growth. How big will my Dianthus grow?
