Starting Hollyhock seeds
Hi Flower Buds,
I'm getting ready to start some perennial Hollyhocks. I realize that since they weren't winter sown, I may not get blooms this year, but my question is HOW to sow them in flats.
I've read they need light and do best surface sown. Should I just lay them flat or lightly insert them into the soil on edge? I've never sown them before and these are all from trades so I don't have a commercial packet with instructions to follow.
Any advice will be great, as I plan to start about 200 or more for the Butterfly Society. They've been chilled for about 2 weeks, but I need to start them by the 15th.
Thanks gardening friends,
