We planted Carnations, and they are doing well with the exception of one row that is doing well but are not flowering. It does get less sun, but the plant is thick and looking good. What should we do?

Generally, carnations have little problems, especially with flowering. However, there are some things you can do--first, if flowering becomes an issue, you could attempt fertilizer. The only problem here though is the fact that you said the plants don't receive as much sun as others. Carnations need at least 6 hours of sun in order to bloom. If these particular plants are not receiving enough light, your only recourse is to transplant them elsewhere OR simply let them be and live with little to no blooms.
