We've been growing plants here in Devon for more than 30 years but don't be fooled into thinking that the climate will make our plants soft and tender; we are nearly 1000 feet above sea level on the edge of Dartmoor and in a 'normal' season would expect to get 45 inches of rain a year. Temperatures in the winter can fall to below -8 Centrigrade so we think it quite likely that most of our plants will go on to more favourable climes!
Dianthus, commonly known as ‘pinks’ represent a wide range of useful garden plants from the ‘Sweet Williams’ grown by parks departments as bedding, through the florist’s carnations to the ‘rockery pinks’ which we grow on the nursery.
Blooming in June, rockery pinks have flowers in shades of white, pink, red or magenta, single or double, held on short stems above mounds of blue-green leaves and most have the classic clove scent. They are easy to grow in a sunny position at the edge of the border, in rockeries or even in tubs and pots.
This variety here is ‘Starry Eyes,’ a relatively new plant selected for its many scented flowers, neat habit and clean healthy leaves.
