Find a spot with well-drained soil and 6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day. Plant your Scent First Tickled Pink Dianthus in a hole twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball. Water immediately to establish roots. Add a 3-inch layer of mulch to prevent weeds. If you’re planting in a container, select a pot that’s twice the size of your plant’s shipping container, and use organic soil. Place your Dianthus, water to settle its roots, and find a sunny spot on your porch or patio.
Water weekly or check the surrounding soil. When the soil is dry about 3 inches down, it’s time to water your Dianthus. If your Dianthus is container-planted, water until you see it flowing from the drainage holes at the bottom.
