Dianthus barbatus (Sweet William) is a bi annual plant. This means that in general terms, biennial seeds are sown in spring and the plants develop throughout the rest of the summer. By autumn they will be well established plants ready to transplant into your garden. Then, after a cold period in the winter which allows the plant to initiate its flower buds, they will provide a colourful display the following spring.
Dianthus barbatus are short lived perennial plants. We would recommend that you treat these plants as annuals.
Dianthus love to be planted in free draining alkaline soils in a nice sunny spot.
