Planting Conditions

This plant is easy to please and doesn't require any special treatment. Just make sure to plant it in well-draining soil that's rich in organic matter. Dianthus 'Cocktail Cherry Daiquiri' prefers full sun, but can tolerate some shade.

Watering & Feeding

Dianthus 'Cocktail Cherry Daiquiri' appreciates a good drink and feeding. Water regularly during the growing season, making sure not to overdo it. We recommend a balanced fertiliser every few weeks to keep it blooming and looking its best. But be careful not to overfeed, too much fertiliser can leave Dianthus 'Cocktail Cherry Daiquiri' a bit leggy. With the right watering and feeding routine, this plant will thrive well in your garden.

General Care

Dianthus 'Cocktail Cherry Daiquiri' is low-maintenance and easy to care for. Regular deadheading of spent flowers will keep it blooming all season long, and pruning back by one-third in late Summer will promote a bushier habit. And while it does not require much care, Dianthus 'Cocktail Cherry Daiquiri' does appreciate a little attention now and then. Whilst resistant to many pests and diseases we always recommend remaining watchful of anything to provide treatment for.
