How to grow 

Choose a sunny location: Cottage pinks thrive in full sunlight, so make sure you choose a spot in your garden that receives at least six hours of direct sunlight each day. Prepare the soil: Cottage pinks prefer well-draining soil that is slightly alkaline. If your soil is too acidic, you can add lime to adjust the pH level. You can also add compost or well-rotted manure to improve soil structure and fertility. Plant the seeds or seedlings: Cottage pinks can be grown from seeds or seedlings. If you are planting seeds, sow them in the soil in the spring or fall. If you are planting seedlings, make sure to space them about 12 inches apart. Water regularly: Cottage pinks need regular watering to thrive. Water them deeply once a week, or more often if the weather is particularly hot or dry. Deadhead regularly: Deadheading, or removing spent flowers, will encourage your cottage pinks to produce more blooms. Make sure to snip off the entire flower stem to promote new growth. Mulch around the plants: Mulching around your cottage pinks will help retain moisture in the soil and suppress weeds. Use a layer of organic mulch, such as shredded leaves or bark.
