Lets talk about them
Stock - such an ugly name for a beautiful flower that smells amazing.
A real springtime queen, beautiful pastel shades, ranunculus and stock are the most perfect spring love story. I grow it en masse every year - it's super easy to grow and low maintenance.
Bred to produce 90% double blooms.
How to make these beauties grow

Notes From The Garden
Stock produce either single or double flowers. If you wish to be selective once germinated chill your seedlings for a few days. Doubles are pale green and often more oval or fused cotyledons. Singles are dark green and more round.
DO NOT PINCH. Stock pay for their beauty in being a 1 cut wonder.
But! it's a fabulous crop for flipping and bed prepping. By the time stock has finished flowering it's just the right time to plant summer annuals. Also cut the stock off right at the base and leave the roots in the soil to help improve your soil health and structure.
