I sowed three packs of Deltoides Dianthus last autumn in seed trays. Brilliancy, Alba and Flashing Lights.

All of these little darlings flourished in that they spread and look very healthy however only Brilliancy actually flowered.

Am I being impatient expecting all three varieties to have flowered or do they like different growing conditions? I am on heavy clay soil but the top layer has been improved greatly so I doubt these little gems would reach down far enough to get their roots into the thick sticky stuff. Anyone any ideas?

The seeds were all bought from a highly respected nursery, sown at the same time and are all planted in the same situation. With the glorious summer we have had i the UK it is a mystery why only one type has smiled on us with flowers though.
