Does anyone plant hollyhocks? I purchased some seeds this past season, but I am unsure WHEN to sprinkle them out. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
I asked the winter sowing forum this same question. The answer is yes I can plant them in January. I have 17 different kinds to plant. I hope to have them all planted in different containers by this weekend.
I have hollyhocks up and growing in the garden. I have seeds from my boo-full red hollyhocks to share, if anyone wants some.
Email your snail mail address. I will send them.
Janie, you've got mail !!!!!
Thanks so much everyone for the infomation. I will get mine out there this week!
I know Hollyhocks are biannuals...do they come back from the roots?
Yes they do. I've had them stay green year round. When they start looking terrible I just whacked 'em back.
Which is what I'm doing now with my Z' hollyhocks.
Just cut 'em down and they'll start re growing new leaves and stalks and looking good again in no time.
I would be interested in seeds, sending email.
Thanks very much!
Cool- thanks melvalena, I whacked mine down yesterday and assumed to be "biannual" they must come back from the roots...with all this rain they had gotten so bad with rust and they were mainly just stalks left.
Thanks for the help!!
RUMBUM - I have tons of seeds, send me and email and I get you some off in the mail~ firstname.lastname@example.org
I found some Hollyhock seeds my sister-in-law gave me several years back, it is Mid=March in Central Williamson Co., Texas; is it too late to plant them? If not, do I just sprinkle the seeds and gently till in?
