If carnations they are unlikely to flower again.  However, I would treat them as though they are the perpetual flowering pinks....nothing to lose.  If they are "pinks." they will reflower soon.

Fluffy Cloud

Walther Funcke, nice coppery orange.  I cut it back in early June and it makes height of about 2' 6"".   Moonshine too is about the same after the same treatment.  Secret is to grow in poorish,,dryish soil I think.  Terracotta is also nice, for an achillea, at about 3'.  All compact when compared with Cloth of Gold.

Get as big a clump as possible.  Either put in large pot or two or plant in ground.  You could dig it up and put in bin liner with damp soil around if.  Tie it around the rootball and leave in the shade
