Stock - Brompton Mixed
This strain gives a mass of lovely colour range blooms and a delicious fragrance.
Sow the seeds from late June to July on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost and lightly cover with a sprinkling of vermiculite. Place in a propagator or a warm place until after germination which usually takes 10-21 days. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise young plants to outdoor conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm apart. Alternatively, seeds can be sown thinly outdoors direct into a nursery bed and transplanted into final flowering positions in the autumn. Flowers from April to July the following year.
