What is Dianthus (Sweet William)

Dianthus (often called Sweet William) is a small cottage garden flower that is also ideal for a courtyard, a pot on the patio or an elegant garden.  It has a lovely fragrance and flowers in spring.  This variety is gorgeous shades of dusky pink, scarlet, red and white.

Culinary Uses for Dianthus (Sweet William) 

Use the pretty flowers as a cake decoration or freeze the petals in ice cubes for cocktail hour. They have a (unsurprisingly) floral, clove-like taste.

Growing Conditions - Dianthus (Sweet William) 

Dianthus is an easy-care flower that is much tougher than it looks. The blossoms will survive a light frost and aren't often affected by pests and disease. Plant in full sun, in a rich, slightly alkaline soil. Water them once or twice a week and keep dead-heading the old flowers to encourage a long flowering. Marigolds are a good companion plant for dianthus.

      We offer a replacement guarantee

      To give you peace of mind, we offer a replacement guarantee if your plants do not arrive in good condition.  If there is a problem please let us know as soon as you receive your package and we will work with you to resolve it.

      What will postage cost?

      Postage varies by region, and by parcel size/weight. 

      Customers are asked to choose the correct postage option at checkout (urban or rural). 

      If you order a worm farm or garden bed and plants in the same order, the postage for the worm farm will be added to the postage for the other items.  (These items are dispatched from separate locations.) 

      If you live in the South Island, Waiheke or Great Barrier Island, please contact us for a custom shipping quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz 

      How often do you dispatch?

      To reduce the risk of plants sitting in a courier depot over weekends, we usually ship orders on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday (except public holidays).   

      How do you package your products?

      We take extra care to water plants well and drain them before sending.  Plants are shipped in specially designed packaging, designed to reduce the risk of damage in transit. Trees and bushes are securely wrapped in paper to reduce risk of soil escaping during transit.  They are well supported with scrunched up paper to prevent movement during transit.  


      Where do you deliver to? 

      We deliver to most locations in the North Island - you can order and make payment via our website, Facebook or Instagram stores.  

      South Island, Waiheke and Great Barrier

      While we deliver to the South Island, we ask customers in these locations to email us for a quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz  Shipping to the South Island can be expensive and is extremely variable by location - we like to avoid nasty shocks at checkout! 

      We don’t generally ship to Waiheke, Great Barrier except by special arrangement. (Delivery can be expensive, and we want to ensure that our live plants arrive in good condition.)  If items are small and non-perishable (such as seeds) delivery may be possible.  Contact us to discuss options: info@urbanbounty.co.nz

      Do you deliver to post office boxes?

      Unfortunately live products like plants, garden beds and worm farms can't be delivered to Post Office Boxes. Large items (like garden furniture) are delivered to the nearest freight depot for customer pickup if outside of Auckland.
