Hi all, I'm growing some Sweet Williams and my idea was to use them as cut flowers. They look like they're about to flower. How much of the stem should I cut and when? Thanks! Owen.
Thanks both. I'm a fan of pinks and grow a few varieties of them on the balcony. This is my first try with Sweet William however. they seem to have grown very well. Thanks again!

I started growing them three years ago and now wouldn't be with out them.  They smell lovely - a very gentle perfume and they last for ages.  They seed themselves about too.

Excellent! I'll look forward to seeing them flower!

I'll cut them mercilessly then to be on the safe side.

Any specially recommended varieties, for next time?

Excellent thanks!

That does look great. Thank you!

Hmm, now quite a few of them are lying down after being battered by so much rain. I suppose that's nothing to worry about? Ought I to have staked them?
