fell in love with carnations and need help!
hey guys! i need some help... first of all i want you guys to know that i dont know anything about gardening... all i know is that you plant some seeds, water them and put them under the sun and (tadaaaaa!!!) it will grow. so i hope you guys bear with me if i ask too many questions...
last week, i was about to buy my girlfriend flowers (back then all that i know off are roses) when i saw pink flowers with lots of petals with an intricate design, after seeing the flowers all i can think off is how pretty they are and everytime i see them it reminds me of my girlfriend, whom i love very much. right there and then i knew that im in love these flowers. i quickly ask the flower seller if what kind of flower are those, and she tells me that their carnations, she even pointed a flower chart where you can see the different kinds of flower their selling (but nothing, to me seems as lovely as those pink carnations). to make a long story short, i bought the flowers, gave it to my girlfriend and further rekindled our love for each other.
after that i cant stop thinking about those flowers, so i went to a flower shop and bought a small pot, i also ask them if they have carnation seeds, which they dont... so i asked a few more shops and finally found some... my first impulse was to put soil in my pot plant the seeds, water it and put it under the sun, but after checking a few sites, i found out that its not as simple as that... so any suggestions guys? i live in asia and i dont know what my zone is... all i know is that the average temp here is about 26 deg celsius. with 23-22 being the lowest in the year(we dont have winter and spring). i also live in a city apartment so all i can use are pots.
many thanks in advance guys, any help is much appreciated.
