Still very green and going strong zone 8b

Out of all of the dianthus I purchased, this is the only one that survived 40 days after the plants arrived. There is two little flowers trying to bloom. They are very very small flowers. There's no scent.

Hello! We're sorry to hear that your other dianthus didn't make it. Please email pictures of the plants to claims@greatgardenplants.com, making sure to put your order number and name in the subject line so that we may provide the best assistance possible. Rest assured, we do have a 60-day guarantee on all of our plants. If you received your plants within that timeframe, we will be happy to apply your warranty once we receive the pictures. Happy Gardening!

Hopeful they will take off and grow

Still no flowers but a great company to buy from.

Hello! Thank you for your feedback. It's hard to say for certain why you have not seen any blooms just yet, since so many factors - like weather, soil type, watering, fertilizing, and not least of all, the type of plant you purchased - all come into play. Perhaps you're familiar with the old saying about plants: first year sleep, second year creep, third year leap. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. With proper care, you dianthus will bloom! Happy Gardening!
