scented evenings

This is night-scented or evening-scented stock growing in a small pot, about 20cm (9″) wide and deep, and when we sit outside in the evening its perfume fills the air. It is an easy annual to grow, Kings and Egmont both sell the seed. I started mine in October, actually in a seed tray and then pricked it out, but I could just as well have sprinkled some seed directly onto the filled pot. It has been flowering and scenting our little outdoor space for more than a month already and looks good for another month at least.
