Dianthus, also commonly known as China Pink, originated in France in the Fourteenth Century and is still a classic favourite in flower gardens today. 'Velvet And Lace' or 'Black And White Minstrels' is a beautiful variety with exquisite coloured petals of deep black and merlot that are trimmed with silvery white. You'll be drawn to the gorgeous lacy petals and the sweet spicy fragrance of this beauty. Producing a profusion of blooms throughout Summer, this is a short lived perennial that is often grown as an annual.

Very easy to grow. Start seeds in punnets or pots of a quality seed raising mix. Moisten the soil and sprinkle seeds on top. Press the seeds gently on the surface and cover with a very light sprinkling of soil. Water with a misting spray and keep soil moist. Transplant outdoors when large enough to handle and after all danger of frost has passed. Space plants 30cm apart in well draining soil.
