(Matthiola incana)
EXCLUSIVE -Nothing compares with the lush beauty and complex spicy-sweet perfume of garden stock. We've sought out the best annual branching variety with a high proportion of double flowers in a beautiful blend of sumptuous colors including vanilla, apple-blossom pink, lilac, carmine, rich purple and white. Reliable and very early blooming, it has the strongest heat tolerance and branching habit of any stock and will reward you with weeks of intensely perfumed, richly hued flowers.

Spring/summer bloom

TO START OUTDOORS

Sow seeds in a well-drained, finely textured garden bed in full sun as early in spring as soil can be worked. In mild climate areas, seeds are best sown in early fall for spring bloom. Space seeds 2 to 3 inches apart and cover 1/4 inch deep. Keep seed bed moist until seedlings emerge in 7 to 10 days. Weed carefully and keep well watered.


TO START EARLY INDOORS

Start seed indoors in a flat or container of seed starting mix, 6 to 8 weeks before last expected hard freeze. Sow seed thinly, cover 1/4 inch deep, and keep moist but not soggy until germination takes place in 7 to 14 days. Provide a strong light source as soon as seedlings emerge. Seedlings grow quickly and require even moisture at their earliest stages: overwatering encourages “damping off,” or rotting at the soil level.


THIN OR TRANSPLANT

Space seedlings 10 inches apart when seedlings are large enough to handle.


GROWING NOTES
