Taking Stock

August 18, 2015

By Tab Byrum

Stock is one of my favorite flowers to use in fresh flower arrangements, it comes in several beautiful colors, but perhaps my most favorite thing about Stock is its scent.

Stock has a spicy scent that almost reminds me of clove, it’s deep, rich and blends beautifully with the scents of other flowers when placed in a mixed arrangement. I’ve also used stock on it’s own, it has a wonderful conical shape that gives a nice burst up of color, Stock is also a reasonably priced flower so you get a lot of punch without spending a lot of money. Stock is a flower that you can grow in your own flower beds, it’s best to plant Stock seeds several weeks before the final projected frost for your part of the country and it will bloom throughout the cool Spring months. Let’s take a look at Stock, both on its own and in mixed arrangements, Enjoy!!!
