Carnations remain the most popular cut flower, and many people want to know how to grow carnation flowers.
Proper care of carnations begins before you even plant your seeds. Growing carnations will be much easier if you plant the seeds in an area that gets a minimum of four to five hours of sun each day. Well-draining soil without mulch, for good air circulation, will help you grow thriving carnation garden plants.
Begin planting carnation seeds outdoors by sowing them in 1/8-inch deep soil that will drain well. Keep the soil in your garden, or container, moist until the seedlings are growing. Once your seedlings are thriving, thin them so the small plants are 10 to 12 inches apart.
Choose a container with drainage holes in it, filling the container within an inch or two from the top with potting soil. Sprinkle the seeds across the top of the soil and cover them lightly.
Water until the soil is most and then wrap the container in a clear plastic bag to create a greenhouse effect. The beginnings of your carnation garden plants should poke through the soil in two to three days. Move the seedlings to their own pots once they have two to three leaves, and transplant them outdoors once they reach a height of 4 to 5 inches
