Monday, July 28, 2008


Propagating Carnations can be done once they become established in the fall by separating the roots, however in drought conditions they need to be watered twice a week and fertilize with a general fertilizer once a month, but they don’t like humidity. Carnations can bloom from spring throughout the summer in white, pink, purple, or red and it is the national flower of Spain. Carnations prefer a slightly alkaline well drained soil and grow as tall as 18" and need full sun. They are deciduous and deer tend to ignore them.
