Why have Carnations become so unfashionable? You rarely see them in garden centres, I didn't see any at Malvern spring show. My Grandads garden used to be full of them, they looked beautiful and smelt amazing. They are also easy to grow.

    The shorter Dianthus have taken their place I think.

    More adaptable in their requirements, and more variations probably. I love mine and intend getting more. image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
