Carnation Chabaud Giants Mix™ is a brilliant hybrid Carnation variety producing spectacularly large double flowers (highly fragrant) in a range of bright colours, profusely throughout the warmer months. This large flowering variety (improved Chabaud) with grey-green foliage is not only an elegant textural contrast for the bright flower spikes, but also provides an attractive and stylish foliar backdrop whether the flowers are in the garden, or are sitting in a stunning floral arrangement.
This heavy flowering variety produces long-lasting flowers which provide months of brilliant colour. The flowers are highly suitable in many types of cut flower floral displays. Carnation varieties are typically easy to grow and provide spectacular colour. As a semi-hardy perennial, Carnation Chabaud Giants Mix™ plants produce even more flowers in the second and subsequent years.

Seed Sowing Instructions
Easy to follow seed propagation notes are provided with every seed purchase
Seeds of this variety are best started in seed raising mix or Jiffy® pellets before planting into the garden
The service cannot be faulted. Seeds arrived within a couple of days of order. Have planted half and after 3 weeks they have surfaced but are very spindly.
This could be because the weather is cooling. Will wait and see, hoping they fatten up soon.
I have not planted the seeds yet but they look lovely on the picture
Seeds are fresh as, after 14 days they started to sprout would highly recommend The Climbing Fig for all your nursery needs. A+ seller
Carnation Giant Seed Mix
Was thrilled to find these seeds. I have been trying to buy giant carnations for a long time but none of the Hobart garden centres I have been to stock them. Have sowed them into my seed raising mix and just can't wait to see them sprout and bloom. These would have to be my favourite flower passed on to me by my late mum who always had them in her garden.
