Stock Flower seeds

Zone inside | kboyle added on November 3, 2015 | Answered

I brought my stock flowers inside to enjoy the scent and colors. Those long seed stalks, can I open them up and plant them? Do I deadhead them with the flowers to get more blooms? It's November and I want to see how long the plant will produce.

You should dead head the spent flowers to keep the plants healthy.

The seed pods should only be harvested after they have dried and turned dark tan or brown.
Green seeds will not germinate.
