Stock is a great flower for the front of the bed, since it has a low growing habit and is delightfully fragrant. The flowers are double and they cover all shades of pink and purple. It germinates reliably and true to variety. These flowers were started from last year’s crop seeds.
Stock is an old fashioned favorite of the cottage garden. They are wonderful in flower arrangements.
Looks like the blush noisette, but it’s only a very resilient, ever-blooming, honey scented miniature rose called “Gourmet Popcorn”. It exudes a delicate perfume that seems to linger in the air somewhere beside it, so you can’t really tell what wonderful flower is gracing you with its sweet fragrance. It grows pretty tall for a miniature rose, about 3 feet tall and 2 feet wide and it thrives on almost nothing. Great for landscaping and borders, it blooms all summer long and it covers the ground under it with a snow of delicate white petals like a little apple tree in spring. Deadhead it to stimulate it to bloom, however this bush rose is self cleaning and blooms freely anyway.
