Move them around until you are satisfied with the look. Refer to the plant tag for the spacing. Avoid straight lines and geometric shapes when planting Dianthus, unless you are looking for a more formal look. Step 3 -- Planting Dig the holes twice as wide and once as deep as the pot. Set the top of the root bowl even with the top of the soil. If you are using a planting mix combine it with the soil and backfill it to ground level. Tamp, lightly fertilize, water and mulch.
