I got some new carnations this year
-some have flowered with 1 flower per plant
-some are more bushy
Should I have pinched the ones with just 1 flower to make them bush out? Early days yet

On plant Dianthus



Hi, I wouldn't worry about them too much, if they're the perennial type, they will bush out next year, if they're tha annual type, you will be throwing them out anyway, Derek.
