Sorry Meomye,

I almost replied before but I've never grown this dianthus.  It looks like an indoor variety,,doesn't It?

however, I would treat it like the usual garden vwrieties, viz., grow it outside and take cuttings as normal.  As soon as frost risk is over I would plant outside in a warm sunny spot. Harden it off by putting it outside during the day for a few days first.

during the summer take pipings/.cuttings of basal shoots and pot them up with a view they will not be hardy over winter.  Grow,the cuttings onion gh.

Ok, confession time.....got half price pasty and 4 cream buns for 50p.  Eaten pasty and two buns and the final two are calling me.  However, I will share........possibly . Shouldn't have got those buns though

Cut back to encourage more....and slightly shorter/sturdier....stems.  As hard as you like but I simply shorten the stems to a few inches from the base.  I usually discard last year's plants and pot up seedlings in late summer.  Better plants then

Don't think the roots will damage the house Morag but aesthetically it must look odd.  You can cut cordylimes right to the ground and they will regrow.  However, I would try to dig them up.  In any event don't keep them there.
