    How to Plant Picotee Mix Carnations

    When to Plant Carnations

    Carnation seeds may be started indoors in the springtime 6 weeks to 2 months before the last frost. If you chose to sow them directly outdoors, be sure that the last frost has occurred. If your winters are mild, carnations seeds may be sown outside from spring until early fall.

    Carnations will grow as perennials in frost free zones and as annuals where winters are cold.

    Where to Plant Carnations

    Carnations do not need a lot of water- except in hot months. Soaker hoses are best. Do not over water as this can cause yellow foliage. Carnations need 4 to 5 hours of sunlight a day. They prefer fertile, well-drained, slightly alkaline (pH 6.75) soil.

    How to Plant Carnations

    If starting indoors seeds should be covered thinly with soil and kept moist. Plant 2 to 3 seeds per pot or cell. Germination will occur within 2 weeks if temperatures are between 65-70F. After germination, move seedlings to a sunny, cool place. They may be transplanted to your garden a week or two prior to the final frost.

    How to Care for Carnations

    Carnations do not need a lot of water- except in hot months. Soaker hoses are best. Do not over water as this can cause yellow foliage.

I started these carnation seeds in March under lights and I was surprised and pleased to see that every seed had sprouted in 10-15 days, in the past I never had this success with seeds from other companies. I live in a suburb near Chicago and I will plant them outside in Late May after hardening them. The plants are now over 2 inches tall and very healthy looking. Can't wait to see them flowering and enjoying their perfumed scent! Great seeds, I will buy some tomato seeds next year, I am sure all type of seeds are good quality from this company. It is hard to find a carnation selection like this anywhere else, I am sure tomato types and other veggies etc. too.
