Susie, they need alkaline soil. Good drainage with reasonable soil quality. Sunshine too. Don't crowd them either.
I suggest you test your soil......if acid pinks won't like that.
If soil is suitable try growing them to reasonable size before planting out. A bed of pinks .....which I did once....is great for cut flowers and loads of scent.
