HOLLY HOCK SEEDS
I have peach colored and double white holly hock seeds for a sase please pm if interested.
Will send pictures upon request.
1 Collect hollyhock seeds, from a friendly neighbor who grows them. Zones through 9 are the areas where these flowers grow well. These flowers are considered biennials, but can be perennials if the flowers are dead headed at the end of their growing season.
2 These flowers typically have a blooming season from July to September in most parts of the country. Plant the seeds about 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost. Hollyhocks usually don't bloom until their second year. By starting them early they may bloom the first year.
3 Use good soil with nutrients to help the seeds grow. Be sure to use pots with some depth as hollyhocks do grow long roots. They don't need to be planted too deeply, just ¼ inch or so in depth. In fact, if deciding to sow the seeds directly into the garden, sprinkle the seeds on top of tilled soil and sprinkle more soil to cover the seeds ¼ inch.
4 Transplant seedlings into the garden when all danger of frost has passed. Be sure the roots are covered with soil and that the plants / flowers are 1 ½ to 2 feet apart. They grow well in full sun to partial shade and need to be watered regularly. are basically carefree once you have them growing.
They look good planted next to a stop sign or utility pole to jazz up the area.
Seeds can be planted in the summer or early fall so they will flower the following year. Can also be planted in front of trees or at the back of your garden to give you a pleasant background for your garden.
