Fragrant stocks

Brompton and East Lothian Stocks take some beating for flower power and especially fragrance in spring. They need to be sown in summer to get sturdy plants to over winter then grow strongly in spring to flower from April to June. This week we have potted six plants from 9 cm diameter pots up into larger pots to grow bushy plants to take into class rooms in a few weeks time. Potting-on was made easier by removing the small pot from the stock plants, using this as a former to make a reversed sand castle so that when the pot is removed it leaves a perfectly shaped hole into which each plant is dropped. Currently the Narcissus Tete a Tete, potted last November and grown under cover since January, are flowering nicely and provided lots of colour for St. Davids Day.
