- Best sown in early summer for planting out in late summer and flowers the following year. Can be sown in seed trays under cover or direct. Cover seed thinly as light helps germination.
This classic cut flower stock is one of the most strongly scented plants there is – with a delicious perfume like cloves. Pinch out the top as they grow to encourage branching and more flower spikes.
Plant where you can enjoy the scent. Good in a container.
