night scented stock - 100 seeds
As one of the traditional old favourites, night-scented stocks are guaranteed will give you a fantastic display year after year. Easy to grow from seed, and highly regarded for their fragrant perfume, night-scented stocks will bloom in just a few weeks from sowing. As their name suggests, night-scented stocks are the perfect plants for providing beneficial nocturnal pollinating insects - such as moths - a vital supply of nectar.
<span style="\"line-height:" 1.6em;\"="">Sow in mid summer 6mm (0.25in) deep in boxes in a cold frame or well ventilated cold greenhouse, but do not exclude light, which is beneficial to germination. Prick out into boxes or pots or direct into the cold frame 15cm (6in) apart, and overwinter there providing good ventilation.
Harden off and plant out in the spring at 30- 38cm (12-15in) apart. In mild districts on well drained soil the plants can be transferred to their flowering positions in early autumn.
