Carnation flower seeds can be directly sown into your flower garden, or started indoors for transplanting later. If planting outdoors, sow the flower seeds in the spring after frost season is over. For indoors, start the Carnation seeds 6 weeks before the end of frost season. When sowing Carnation flower seeds, cover them lightly with fine soil the thickness of the seeds. Space seeds or seedlings approximately 12 inches apart. Pinch out the growing tips on seedlings when the plants are 2 - 3 inches in height. This encourages bushy growth.
Carnation flowers are very easy to grow. They prefer full sun and a rich, well drained soil. Water them during dry periods, once or twice per week. Add a general purpose fertilizer once or twice a month, but no more than that or you will get too much foliage. Carnations have few problems with insects and disease.
