Are the stocks that I buy, and plant out, in autumn for spring flowering Brompton, 10 week, or whatever?

colours are the usual stock colours but the flowers seem to be 'looser' than those usual shown

On plant Matthiola



They're usually Brompton stocks - though there is another group called "East Lothian Stock" which does have slightly looser flower heads, and are often sold as Brompton stocks anyway.

if they are planted in autumn then they will flower in spring. as bamboo says likely to be bromptons. if left they will self sow too.
