Dianthus Plant Care

Sweet William tends to be biennial so allow seed to fall. During growing season, lightly fertilize monthly to keep them growing and producing. Deadhead early season blooms to encourage new buds to form. To ensure future plants, leave late-season faded blossoms on stems. Prefers a moist well-drained soil.
