|I recently purchased three dianthus from the Home Depot. I planted them in mostly sunny bed and they were doing great but have since lost all blooms and don't seem to have any new ones coming. Am I wrong in thinking they're supposed to bloom all summer long? If not, what would you recommend I do to stimulate new blooms? Thanks in advance for your help!

|Your dianthus will rest a little and then bloom again. Just shear the plants to remove the spent flowers and stems. New growth will emerge and new flowers, too. Enjoy!
