Column stocks are traditional cut flower varieties perfect for growing en masse, with each plant bearing a single, densely packed flower spike on a tall stem that is perfect for the vase. Perfect in pastels, column stock 'Apricot' is an exquisitely elegant variety boasting large, pale peach blooms with a divine clove-like fragrance. Sow these easy hardy annuals successionally for continuous flowering from late spring throughout summer. Height: 75cm (30in). Spread: 25cm (10in).
Culinary note: Stock flowers are edible and are usually added raw to salads or used as a garnish to desserts, giving a perfumed flavour. They can also be candied.

Direct sow stocks outdoors where they are to grow from April to July. Choose a position in full sun on any well drained soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Sow seeds thinly, at a depth of 6mm (¼in) in drills spaced 30cm (12”) apart and cover the seed with its own depth of soil to exclude light. Water the ground regularly, especially during dry periods. Germination usually takes 7 - 14 days. When stock seedlings are large enough to handle, thin them out to 30cm (12”) apart.
