Balcony carnations thrive in beds and window boxes or pots as well as in meadows and pastures. Even in wall crevices and on areas with gravel and stones or on dry slopes, the humble carnation flowers are happy. They love to grow where the soil is warm. Because balcony carnations are so undemanding, they can also tolerate nutrient-rich soil if you mix in a little gravel or sand. They can cope with full sun as well as light partial shade in the open, at the edge of the garden, on the balcony or in the garden.
