Treat as a tender perennial in zones 5-6 and an annual in 7-9. In spring loosen enriched garden soil to a fine consistency down to a 6" depth. Carnations prefer a higher PH in the 6.5 to 7 range, but will also grow in PH levels down to 6. Carnations dislike soggy conditions so place in them in a raised garden bed. It's best to start carnations in pots 8 weeks before your last frost as they take some time to mature enough to create flowers and dislike hot summer weather. They require light to germinate so sow on the surface and very lightly dust with sand, vermiculite, or peat. While young keep plants cool and once they are 6" tall pinch out the center to encourage bushy growth. Transplant to the garden after you last frost. In mild zones you can direct seed in the garden in spring but it is possible they will not have flowers their first year.

Once in the garden, and they get over developed and start to show decline, divide and transplant.
