Product Description

The good old Carnation is back in vogue! Gardeners and florists are getting more excited about the humble carnation, and this popular dianthus is making a well-deserved comeback. With their fresh, bright, vivid colours this new breed of carnations is particularly striking.

Traditionally a flower for Mother's Day, the carnation had fallen out of favour, but thanks to some superb new varieties, it's once again working its way back into gardens and flower vases.

A new introduction, the Solomio range of spray carnations has been specially bred to feature blooms which are carried high up on the stem in vivid colours and a light fragrance. The blooms are composed of petals that emerge horizontally to create an almost flat surface, resulting in a truly unique flower.

Eye catching in the garden, they're perfect for cutting and the sprays are easy to use, long lasting, and with the new and exciting varieties and colours such as those in the Solomio series, it’s no surprise that they're featuring more and more in bridal bouquets.

Easy to grow, the blooms are produced above neat mounds of evergreen leaves. Plants may need staking if the flower sprays are left on.

Supplied as 12 Jumbo Plug Plants, 3 each of Solomio Tino (Cream with a Magenta edge), Solomio Fen (Bicolour pink), Solomio Bono (Purple with a White edge), and Solomio Boyd (Green).

Top Tips

Continued deadheading will ensure flowers right up to the first frosts

Care Guide

  • For most jumbo plug plant collections, the “mini Greenhouse” they are packed in will have a label on the outside, listing the individual varieties inside. We recommend writing your own labels out on receipt!
  • Give your plugs a little attention on arrival - unpack them immediately, and either mist them or stand them in water for an hour - they may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but they’ll quickly recover.
    If you can’t do this, they can sit in Mini Greenhouses for a week if upright and not too wet.
    We recommend that you leave them to settle for a day somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • When you're ready to pot on, use a good quality, multi-purpose compost, and fill 3-4in pots (7-10cm).
  • Make a hole in the compost with a dibber or your finger, then holding each plug by its root ball, place it into the hole and gently firm the compost around it.
  • For great results, we recommend using our Windowsill Planters or 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry as they don’t like to be left in standing water.
  • Grow on either on a bright windowsill or a greenhouse for 3-4 weeks before potting up into containers or into flower beds.
  • If planting directly into flower beds when all risk of frost has passed, prepare the ground well, removing weeds and digging in some compost or well-rotted manure if your soil is not already rich.
    Plant approx. 20cm (8”) apart to allow them room to grow. Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
  • Dead-head when flowers fade to encourage more blooms.
