Dianthus

I rescued two of these from Bunnings warehouse (a big box store similar to Lowes in the US)  in summer. They were marked down to $0.70c and were almost dead. I have no idea what the cultivar is as there was no tag.

But a good haircut, teasing the roots, water, a slow release feed and a fortnightly dose of seaweed emulsion and here it is:

carnation

I can’t believe it is flowering at the moment, but, that’s the warm weather for you!
