Stock Double Perfection Plant Propagation:
Stock plants are grown from seeds. Stock seeds can be directly seeded into your flower garden, or seeded indoors for transplanting later.
Sow Stock seeds early in the season and cover lightly with 1/8″ of fine garden or potting soil. Water thoroughly when planting. Keep the soil most.
Transplant Stock into your garden after the last frost date for your area. Space them seven to twelve inches apart. They will tolerate a little crowding.
How to Grow Stock Plants:
Stock likes full sun. They will tolerate a light shade. Plants prefer rich, loose soil that drains well. Add a general purpose fertilizer when planting them, then once a month after that.
Once your Stock plants are established, they should grow well with few problems. Keep the soil moist to slightly dry. Water them during dry periods, once or twice per week. Keep them well weeded, or apply a 2-3 inch layer of mulch for a tidy appearance.
Stock thrives in cooler weather or climates. They will not form flower buds in temperatures higher than the mid 60s. In warm weather areas, try planting them in the winter for spring blooms.
Stock will survive a light frost.
