How do I grow garden Pinks?

Old Fashioned Pinks

Old time pinks, those smaller relatives of the Carnations, were beautiful and many had a wonderful clove scent. They were once to be found in every cottage garden. They did have a couple of major faults in that the flowering period consisted of just one flush around midsummer and the blooms sometimes split.
They are still worth growing for the authentic touch.
