This lovely flower is called stock. It has stemmed florets that are beautiful clusters and has a heavenly scent!
I cut off stock both in individual florets and in clusters of several blooms. Make it interesting - have a variety!
Lay the toothpick against the slender stalk and tape as before.
You can cut off shorter sections to insert toothpicks into.
I literally pulled the individual blooms together and taped. I then pushed a toothpick up into the bottom stem.
