One of my most favorite annual flowers in our garden. It blooms spring to fall and once it starts to bloom, the flower spike will stay for a long time, so you will have non stop flowers. Stock flowers come in different range of pleasant colors, we have few of them. They grow in full sun or partial shade and do great in pots too. Absolutely it adds great color to any garden.
When to collect the seed pods
Once the seed pods turn light brown, pluck them from the plant and store in a dry place. We always collect the seeds from the plant and store for the next season. The seeds are so tiny, sow them in good potting soil and the seedlings should appear in 10 to 15 days. Once the seedlings grow couple of inches in height, you can replant them.
