Dianthus, also known as pinks, are related to carnations and have a similar fanciful, frilled femininity. They also boast a slightly spicy, almost clove-like scent and, despite their delicate appearance, hold up well in heat, humidity and cold.

Dianthus Seeds & Plants

Jolt seeds

DIANTHUS Hybrid (Barbatus x Chinensis)

A new type of dwarf hardy dianthus that flowers slightly earlier than dwarf annual types. Plant breeders crossed Sweet William with annual dianthus to produce a species that had larger self cleaning flowers, more free flowering and better garden performance during summer heat. Plants will flower about 10 – 15 days earlier than traditional annual types.

(16 in/41 cm) Blooms spring-fall, loves heat and continues to flower without setting seed. Pkt contains 10 pellets.

CULTURE: Sow Mar. 1st. – 15th. for May blooms in paks. Plant seed about 1/8 in/3 mm deep, cover lightly. Germinate at 70°F/21°C soil temp. for 8-10 days. As soon as seedlings sprout, lower seedling growing temperatures to about 50°F/10°C to prevent stretching. Transplant 4 to 5 weeks later at the same depth as they were as seedlings. Continue to grow plants in a cool, well ventilated area, treating them regularly (once a week) with a fungicide to prevent damping off.

Mix in 1.2 oz of ground rock sulfur per square yard if the soil is sandy

The acidity or alkalinity of soil is a measurement by pH (potential Hydrogen ions). pH is a way to measure the amount of lime (calcium) contained in your soil, and the type of soil that you have.

Correcting the pH has the same effect as applying fertilizer as it unlocks plant nutrients already present.

It is recommended that you use a relatively inexpensive, and follow the manufacturers instructions when testing the pH Level of your Gardens soil.

To increase your pH by 1.0 point and make your soil more alkaline.

Other materials will accomplish the same results; however the two that are listed are the most commonly used.
Limestone is added to the soil to raise the pH level because limestone is essentially calcium and calcium reacts with water in the soil to yield hydroxyl ions .. a process known as, hydrolysis = thus the pH level in the soil is raised.
Sulfur reacts with bacteria in the soil and produces sulfuric acid, which releases hydrogen ions thus causing the soil to become more acidic =the pH level is lowered.

Composted leaves, wood chips, sawdust, leaf mold and peat moss, will also help to lower the soil pH.

The addition of ash, bone meal, or crushed oyster shells will also help to raise soil pH levels.

Temperature:

Add 25 ounces of hydrated lime per square yard in peaty soils
