(Matthiola incana) Stocks are a fragrant flower that is incredibly sweet, spicy and utterly intoxicating! It is a member of the brassica family and one of the best-smelling flowers available. With its luxuriant and stunning clusters of blooms, this flower is a true classic, and it makes an excellent cut flower for arrangements. The hardy and sturdy plants are a great choice for containers. Keep in mind that stocks prefer cool weather and the plants' blooming ability will suffer in summer's heat, so it is ideally suited to early spring and fall. Start seeds indoors about one month before planting out. Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep. Ideal germination temperature is 60-65F. Seeds germinate in 7-21 days. Space plants 8-12 inches apart. Stock flourishes in full sun and will provide glorious blooms throughout spring.
