Overview

For centuries carnations, pinks and sweet williams - all part of the genus "dianthus" - have had an enduring appeal, providing beautiful colour and delicate fragrance. No garden is now complete without them. The choice for the modern gardener is now wider than ever, with a vast array of hybrids available in a myriad of different forms.
This practical book explores the history of the genus "dianthus", and examines such topics as cultivation, propagation, hybridizing, exhibiting and the avoidance of pests and diseases. There are also tips on practical uses for the flowers - in cookery, health drinks and recipes, and as pot-pourri. Sophie Hughes and her husband have recently been featured on the Channel 4 programme, "Flowering Passions".
