Indian Springs Mix Hollyhock Seeds

SKU: SFS-HOL-IND-ER
Our ‘Indian Springs Mix’ Hollyhock Seed is one of the original, old-fashioned “outhouse” hollyhock mixes. Called the “outhouse” hollyhock because back in Victorian times the tall hollyhocks were planted around outhouses in order to disguise the building. Victorian ladies didn’t have to ask where the outhouse was, but asked, instead, to be pointed to where the hollyhocks grew, saving them the embarrassment of admitting to their natural bodily functions. These single blossomed beauties have charmingly ruffled, large flowers with contrastingly-colored centers in shades of salmon, rose, pink, red and a white cultivar called Summer Frost. Approximately 100 seeds per each hand-filled packet. More details...

Indian Springs Mix Hollyhock Seeds Growing Information

Hollyhock seeds will easily self-sow, which also means they are fairly easy to germinate. If starting outdoors, plant them in late summer and plan to see sprouts the following spring. If starting indoors, you can start seedlings in the winter, using seed trays or pots with at least a 6-inch depth to accommodate the long tap root. You can, of course, sow them in smaller seed trays, transplanting them into deeper pots once you are assured of successful germination and growth. Transplant outdoors after the last projected frost date for your area and when your seedlings at least have their first true leaves. When transplanting, dig at least 12-inches down, loosening the soil throughout the planting hole, enabling that long tap root to stretch deep and get a good hold. Try not to disturb the tap root, either using peat pots and replanting the whole pot, or carefully removing all of the soil in the pot, along with the plant, without breaking the soil apart. You may or may not have blossoms the first year, but you can definitely count on tons of gorgeous color for every subsequent year!
