For centuries carnations, pinks and sweet williams - all part of the genus dianthus - have had an enduring appeal, providing beautiful colour and delicate fragrance. No garden is now complete without them. For the modern gardener the choice is now wider than ever with a vast array of hybrids available in a myriad of different forms.

In this absorbing and largely practical book Sophie Hughes explores the considerable history of the genus dianthus and examines such topics as cultivation, propagation, hybridizing, exhibiting and the avoidance of pests and diseases.
