help!! old fashioned 'proper' carnations needed
I have my favourite corner of my garden where I sit and think!! I have planted sweet William and dianthus in it and it smells beautiful. Over the top is a triangle arbour covered with the most beautifully scented clematis(flowering now).
last year I bought some carnation plug plants that were sold as large headed red carnatios scented but when they grew I was very disappointed to find that they were the same dianthus that I have already. I have searched the garden centres but they say they are no longer 'fashionable'.
does any of the rnembers have a carnation that I could possible have cuttings off that is the old fashioned type of plant. a sturdy tall stemmed with large scented heads.. this would make my little corner complete.
