Description for Stock

Some stocks are grown as annuals (the Ten week Stocks). These varieties are sown in spring (generally from March onwards in colder areas, earlier in regions with mild winters). They give a good summer flower display. Other varieties take longer to develop and are treated as biennials.

These are often referred to as "Brompton stocks". In cool temperate regions they are generally sown in summer (June and July) to flower in the following spring. The extra trouble of overwintering the plants is compensated for by the showy spring floral display. In hard winters there may be some mortality and a well drained sheltered site suits them best.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty

Planting and care

Stock flower info says the plant is an annual, grown from seed to fill those bare spots among other blooms in the spring to summer garden. Other info says stock flowers can be biennial
In areas without freezing winters, stock flower info says it may even perform as a perennial. Stock flowers bloom from spring to summer, offering continuous blooms in the sunny garden when given the right stock plant care

Caring for Stock

  • Temperatures should remain at 50 to 55 F. (10-13 C.) during this timeframe.
  • Colder temperatures may damage the roots. If you neglect this aspect of caring for stock plants, blooms will be sparse or possibly nonexistent.
  • Stock likes full sun. They will tolerate a light shade. Plants prefer rich, loose soil that drains well.
  • Add a general purpose fertilizer when planting them, then once a month after that.
  • Once your Stock plants are established, they should grow well with few problems.
  • Keep the soil moist to slightly dry. Water them during dry periods, once or twice per week.
  • Keep them well weeded, or apply a 2-3 inch layer of mulch for a tidy appearance.
  • Stock thrives in cooler weather or climates.
  • They will not form flower buds in temperatures higher than the mid 60s.
  • In warm weather areas, try planting them in the winter for spring blooms.
  • Stock will survive a light frost.
