Night scented Stock Prolonging flowering

Berks, United Kingdom Gb

Hi can anyone tell me how to prolong my Night scented stock flowering , they have been beautifull so far this year but seed pods have now started to form and the flowers dropping , but would love them to continue throughout the summer , any suggestions gratefully recieved so sitting on the patio during the evening smelling the scent can be achieved for a few more weeks.



Paul, if you remove the seed pod, you may get your stocks to continue flowering.

Maybe next year, sow a few seeds and then follow up with more a few weeks later - this works well with salad/rocket leaves and I can't see why it wouldn't work with night scented stocks.

as cammomile says next year do reapeat but thinner sowings evry 2 weeks or so until about mid july and you will have flowers until early september. they are great arnt they.
try night scented phlox too. an annual and perrenial form are available.
