Pinks plants

Pinks plantsPinks will live in almost any soil, but if large blooms are required rich earth is essential. They are increased by pipings taken in May or June. These should be planted out in October, but must be given a well-drained position, as too much wet is injurious to Pinks. Do not set the roots too deep, but let the collar of the plant be on a level with the soil.
