Types of Carnations

Carnation cultivars are mainly of three types:
Large flowered Carnations – one large flower per stem.
Spray Carnations (Mini Carnations) – with lots of smaller flowers.
Dwarf flowered Carnations – several small flowers on one stem.

Growing Carnations

Carnations grow readily from cuttings made from the suckers that form around the base of the stem, the side shoots of the flowering stem, or the main shoots before they show flower-buds.
The cuttings from the base make the best plants in most cases.
These cuttings may be taken from a plant at any time through fall or winter, rooted in sand and potted up.
They may be put in pots until the planting out time in spring, which is usually in April or in any time when the ground is ready to be handled.
The soil should be deep, friable and sandy loam.

Yellow Nasturtiums Flowers – Cup of Sun

Yellow Nasturtiums flowers are versatile; attractive in the landscape and useful in the garden. Nasturtium plants are fully edible and growing nasturtiums can be used to lure aphids away from other plants in the garden.

Nasturtium plants are easy to grow and may be climbing, cascading or bushy. Care of nasturtiums is minimal; in fact, nasturtium plants are one of those specimens that thrive on neglect. Rich, fertile soil or too much fertilizer results in lush foliage growth and few nasturtium flowers. Nasturtium plants come in more than 50 varieties.

Nasturtiums plants grow very full, with spots of brightly colored blossoms poking out of masses of foliage. Leaves are rounded, like a water lily. The flowers are an open funnel shape with a curious little claw or spur on the underside. They are most often seen in rich shades of yellow, orange, , pink, red and mahogany but there are also varieties in subdued shades of butter yellow and cream.

Dwarf and variegated nasturtium varieties add an ornamental element to small containers or mixed in with solid green foliage plants and white blooms. If using the nasturtium in a container combination, make sure the other plants do not require a lot of water or fertilizer, as the nasturtium needs little of either.

Both nasturtium flowers and leaves are edible as long as you don’t use pesticides. They give a peppery punch similar to watercress in salads and pasta dishes, and the flowers add a hit of color and flavor. Nasturtium seeds are edible as well when they are young and green and have been likened to capers when pickled. They even offer their fare share of Vitamin C.

Masses of flowers in sunshine colors: bright lemon-yellow, gold touched with toasty orange and a pastel yellow that fades to soft cream. The cheerful blossoms shine above blue-green foliage.
