    Dianthus Collection | Alpine Pinks

    This group of Alpine Pinks can also be planted in a rock garden or for borders. Many varieties have gained the prestigious Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit - the highest accolade the Society can give for a plant of outstanding garden performance.

    Garden Pinks vary in height from 35cm - 45cm, nearly all are wonderfully fragrant and adored by pollinators, also suitable for cut flowers. Ideal in any free draining soil in a sunny spot.

    The Dianthus Collections will grow to an average height of 10cm. These often scented Alpines will flower for months on end, with blooms in shades of pink, red, white and also bi-coloured, as long as they are regularly dead-headed, providing a perfect food source for bees and other pollinators. Ideal in any free draining soil in a sunny spot.

    Alpine Pinks Preparation For Winter

    Although rabbits are a real nuisance, they also make a very good job of pruning Pinks.   We recommend you follow their example and give your plants a very good pruning during autumn, creating a nicely shaped plant ready to go into the winter.  A little gravel or bark mulch will help to deter slugs and snails.

    Regular dead-heading will encourage continued flowering. Dead-hedging means when the main stem has finished flowering, pick or cut off the stem at the base of the plant in order to keep the plant tidy and to encourage repeat flowering.
