Here in california, sweet williams are extremely easy to grow, and very hard to kill. I have planted mine in full sun and full shade, and both beds are blooming beautifully.
A couple of years ago, I planted a bed of dianthus under a holly tree. In the fall, I pulled them up and planted pansys in that same bed. The old dianthus, I threw to the side of a compost pile, where they layed until the following spring. Then my brother came for a visit, and noticed the old discarded dianthus that I had thrown away was blooming, and asked if he could have them. He took them home and now has a beatiful bed of them in his front yard, even after all the abuse those plants went thru. I can't imagine you will have any trouble growing them, as they are one of the hardiest little plants I have come across. Good luck, and let us know how you do!
