Dianthus caryophyllus (Clove Pink) is a species of Dianthus. It is probably native to the Mediterranean region but its exact range is unknown due to extensive cultivation for the last 2,000 years. It is the wild ancestor of the garden carnation. It is a herbaceous perennial plant growing to 80 cm tall. The leaves are glaucous greyish green to blue-green, slender, up to 15 cm long. The flowers are produced singly or up to five together in a cyme; they are 3–5 cm diameter, and sweetly scented; the original natural flower colour is bright pinkish-purple, but cultivars of other colours, including red, white, yellow and green, have been developed. Growing carnations Carnations require well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soil, and full sun. Numerous cultivars have been selected for garden planting. Typical examples include 'Gina Porto', 'Helen', 'Laced Romeo', and 'Red Rocket'. Colombia is the largest carnation producer in the world. Holidays and events Carnations are often worn on special occasions, especially Mother's Day and weddings. In 1907 Anna Jarvis chose a carnation as the emblem of Mother's Day because it was the favourite flower of her mother. This tradition is now observed in the United States and Canada on the second Sunday in May. Ann Jarvis chose the white carnation because she wanted to represent the purity of a mother's love. This meaning has evolved over time, and now a red carnation may be worn if one's mother is alive, and a white one if she has died. In Korea, red and pink Carnations are used for showing their love and gratitude toward their parents on Parents Day (Korea does not separate Mother's Day and Father's Day, but has Parents Day on 8 May). Sometimes, you can see parents wear a corsage of Carnation(s) on their left chest on Parents Day. Not only on Parents Day, but also on Teacher's Day (15 May), people express their admiration and gratitude to their teachers with Carnations, as Carnation has the meaning of 'admiration', 'love', and 'gratitude'. Red carnations are worn on May Day as a symbol of the labor movement in some countries, such as Austria, Italy, and successor countries of former Yugoslavia. Red carnation is also the symbol of the Portuguese Carnation Revolution. Green carnations are for St. Patrick's Day and were famously worn by the Irish writer Oscar Wilde. The green carnation thence became a symbol of homosexuality in the early 20th century. At the University of Oxford, carnations are traditionally worn to all examinations; white for the first exam, pink for exams in between and a red for the last exam. One suggested reason for this tradition is a story that tells that initially this was a white carnation that was kept in a red inkpot between exams, so by the last exam it was fully red. It is thought to originate in the late 1990s. Colors Carnations do not naturally produce the pigment delphinidin, thus a blue carnation cannot occur by natural selection or be created by traditional plant breeding. It shares this characteristic with other widely sold flowers like roses, lillies, chrysanthemums and gerberas. Around 1996 a company, Florigene, used genetic engineering to extract certain genes from petunia and snapdragon flowers to produce a blue-mauve carnation, which was commercialized as Moondust. In 1998 a violet carnation called Moonshadow was commercialized. As of 2004 three additional blue-violet/purple varieties have been commercialized. Etymology Carnations were mentioned in Greek literature 2,000 years ago. "Dianthus" was coined by Greek botanist Theophrastus, and is derived from the Greek words for divine ("dios") and flower ("anthos"). Some scholars believe that the name "carnation" comes from "coronation" or "corone" (flower garlands), as it was one of the flowers used in Greek ceremonial crowns. Others think the name stems from the Latin "caro" (genitive "carnis") (flesh), which refers to the original colour of the flower, or incarnatio (incarnation), which refers to the incarnation of God made flesh.
Although originally applied to the species Dianthus caryophyllus, the name Carnation is also often applied to some of the other species of Dianthus, and more particularly to garden hybrids between D. caryophyllus and other species in the genus.

<h2><strong>Garden Peach Tomato Seeds</strong></h2>
<h2><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>Price for Package of<strong> 10 or 20 </strong>seeds.</strong></span></h2>
<p>Peach tomatoes, like other peach-type tomato varieties, have a soft fuzz that covers their skin. The creamy yellow fruit (approx weight 80-90 grams) is about 5 centimeters (two inches) in size with superb taste and texture and is allegedly the sweetest of all peach tomato varieties. The fruity flavor is complex, with sweet well-balanced components. The fruits ripening approximately 80 days after transplanting. The indeterminate, regular leaf plant is extremely productive, yielding thousands of the round, delicate fruit continuously over the course of the season.</p>
<p>Peach tomatoes have such a great natural flavor that they are fit for eating right off the vine. Their depth of sweetness is best eaten fresh, so they are not often used for preserves. They work beautifully in salads, or they can simply be drizzled with a bit of olive oil and sprinkled with chopped basil. They are also a nice complement to the dark, rich, slightly salty black Krim heirloom tomato. Store tomatoes at room temperature until fully ripe, after which refrigeration can slow the process of decay.</p>
<p>Garden Peach tomatoes are a cultivar of tomato, native South American fruit mainly from Peru. It was the winner of the heirloom taste test in 2006 and has won numerous other contests thanks to its fruity yet spicy, complex tomato flavor.</p>

<p>What's the difference between "indeterminate" and "determinate" tomatoes?</p>
<p><strong>Determinate tomatoes</strong>, or "bush" tomatoes, are varieties that grow to a compact height (generally 3 - 4'). Determinates stop growing when fruit sets on the top bud. All the tomatoes from the plant ripen at approximately the same time (usually over period of 1- 2 weeks). They require a limited amount of staking for support and are perfectly suited for container planting.</p>
<p><strong>Indeterminate tomatoes</strong> will grow and produce fruit until killed by frost. They can reach heights of up to 12 feet although 6 feet is normal. Indeterminates will bloom, set new fruit and ripen fruit all at the same time throughout the season. They require substantial staking for support and benefit from being constrained to a central growing stem.</p><script src="//cdn.public.n1ed.com/G3OMDFLT/widgets.js"></script>
