The Q&A Archives: Sweet Virginia Stock

Question: Several years ago I purchased seeds through your catalog for Sweet Virginia Stock. They were little purple
flowers which once they started blooming had a wonderful sweet fragrance at night. I can't seem to find these seeds anywhere any more. Will you be carrying them again-am I able to order them from you-or do you know of any sources for them?

Answer: This stock must have been a variety of Matthiola. Unfortunately it is not listed in the current Burpee catalogs. One source for the "Giant Excelsior Mix" this year is Johnny's Selected Seeds, 1 Foss Hill Rd., RR Box 2580, Albion ME 04910-9731; Tel. (207) 437-4301. (There is also a web site at ) Good luck with your search!
