saving Hollyhock seeds!
My friend in Idaho sent me some hollyhock seeds last year. I planted some of them in my vegetable garden, and I was so excited, THEY GREW!
This year, they really took off! The plants are 9'8" tall, and they have been covered with big ruby colored flowers for over a month! People stop on the road to look at them, they are so unusual here on the Texas Gulf Coast.
Now we are getting a lot of seed pods forming, and I want to save the seeds,of course. What is the best way to do this? I mean, is there anything peculiar about hollyhock seeds that I should know? Do they need to be planted immediately? How long are they viable?
