Good old Doris, still as pretty in pink!

My original 'Doris' became so woody she had to be replaced.

Easy from cuttings, before they become to woody.

My favourite shade of pink on this one.

I agree Chris, a very subtle colour.

Siris, I have tried so many times over the years to propagate Dianthus, never works for me.

The pinks have flowered really well this year. I've just cut the dead heads off and have taken some cuttings.

Lindak, any tips on growing Dianthus cuttings? I always fail with mine!

I was just going to ask if you take cuttings.....!Just pull out some side shoots,strip some leaves off the bottom,dip into rooting powder, and place round the edge of plant pot.I'll try and put a pic.on, of some of mine.Now is the right time to do them.Good Luck.

Thanks Val ... I shall look out for the pic.

I do that too except don't use rooting powder. Good luck Val. Sometimes you'll lose a few cuttings but you'll get some take.
