Product Description

Sweet William 'Indian Carpet' will brighten up any garden with their cheery colours though spring and summer - they're the perfect choice for bringing extra colour to gardens when the main flowering season is well and truly over.

An easy to grow hardy perennial, the Sweet William is a classic cottage-garden plant, and this modern variety produces masses of colourful, fragrant blooms. Best planted in autumn, you will get flowers when all else is fading, and they will continue to flower from spring and into summer. 

With an abundance of star-shaped, frilly flowers and a delicate scent, Dianthus are versatile, easy to grow and as Indian Carpet is compact, they are great in pots and containers as well as in beds and borders. You won't need to spend hours in the garden tending to these Dianthus, simply plant, water and grow!

Supplied as a pack of 20 Garden-Ready plants to be planted straight out.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for Sweet Williams:

  • Unpack plugs immediately and stand them in water for an hour. If you can't do this, they can sit in Mini Greenhouses for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • Plugs may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but they'll quickly recover. Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • When potting on, handle plugs carefully. Pot on using our 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays, using good multi-purpose compost.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry. They don't like to be left in standing water.
  • Plant approx. 20cm (8in) 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 flowers.

 

Pruning Advice for Sweet Williams:

  • Prune plants back hard in midsummer if they become scruffy or floppy. Don't deadhead plants completely, leave some on to self-seed.
  • Plants are easily divided in early autumn or spring. Remove fading flowers to encourage more buds to form.
