Soil, perlite and peat-perlite mixes were compared in relation to flower production and the quality of carnation (Dianthus caryophyllus). For this purpose a split-plot trial with the standard carnation cv. Roberta was carried out in a plastic covered greenhouse in Bursa, Turkey. Two different nutrient solutions were also evaluated for fertigation of the plants. The experiment lasted for three cutting periods. Flower production and some quality criteria of the flowers were determined. Leaf samples were taken and analysed for macro and micro nutrients.
