Night Scented Stock seeds create a sensory delight in your garden. The small delicate flowers come in elegant pastel pink hues, and they release their unbeatable fragrance at twilight. These plants are easy to grow and don't require much maintenance, and thrive in a range of soil conditions. They also make excellent cut flowers.
Approx. 1500 seeds
Sow outdoors, March-June, where they are to flower, 0.5cm (¼") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Thin them to 15cm (6") apart and water well until plants are established. For a continuous display, make sowings at two to three-week intervals. Sowings made in curves, rather than straight lines, often create a more pleasing effect. Flowers: June to October.
Try mixing the seed with Virginian Stock to give a colourful, daytime display and a sweet scent in the evening.
