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!

Super Plants

Received the Black Cherry Frost Dianthus in good order. At the time they arrived the weather had turned cold and rainy. They lived on my covered porch for a week but are now in the ground and doing very well. Have purchased other plants from Great Gardens and been pleased. Thanks.

Hi John, thank you for taking the time to share a photo of your new dianthus with us! They're looking great. We hope that you enjoy them for many seasons to come. Happy Gardening!
