I bought a bunch of plants, planted them in the ground with my other flowers and they just .... sit there. No flowers for 2 years, but the plant is growing !!
How do I grow carnations?
No answers from personal experience, I'm afraid. Here is the site of the British Carnation Society. I hope it's of some help: http://carnations.org.uk/varieties/varie...
(though I see they are keen to sell you advice rather than give it)

Reply:Transpant them to an area that receives more sun and fertilize with aged manure.
