Depending on your growing zone, Stock may be an annual, biennial or a perennial.
The flowers can be cut at any length that you want for cut flowers, though you should remove the stem down to the crown of the plant.
Depending on the age of the plants and the environmental conditions you may have more flowering from the plants.
