night scented stocks

    Grew them this year from seed, the scent is there but not as strong as normal, my sweet rocket is also having  a second flush and smells absolutely georgeous. Ive planted it next to lillies by the arch and you can smell them everytime you go up the garden after dark or sit in the garden.

    I have a wonderfull stock named pillow talk it's white and has the most amazind scent

    it's not a night scented one but the scent stays day and night. I have had many people comment on how lovely it is.

    I think i grew it from seed last year and it flowered this spring, i deadheaded after flowering and it has just flowered again.

    I need to propagate this plant not sure if i should keep some seeds or try cuttings any advice please ?

    Ah yes i think i perhaps got mine from Sarah Raven also

    i would recomend staking them as they tend to flop over.

    I didn't have any luck with any Sarah raven seeds this year and brought about 4 different varieties image

    Just chuckling at my silliness, verdun, you must think I' m so thick, I should have though t night scented stocks were just that, I think I just wished them to be evening scented! They do smell divine but later than I can appreciate, just going to have a quick sniff then definitely bed, night night!
