~~~~~HEIRLOOM ORGANIC HOLLYHOCK SEEDS MIXED COLORS OPEN POLLINATED~~~~~
If you would like PINK ONLY Hollyhock Seeds see my other listing here:
Mixed colors organic heirloom hollyhock seeds I harvested and sorted from our own beautiful, healthy plants.
I have shown just one of the colors; however our various plants produced a wide range of colors.
We use no pesticides or herbicides (ie, "round-up") in our garden.
These hollyhocks are "long bloomers" & create a stunning visual delight.
Some have reached well over ten feet but I would say the norm is between four to eight feet and varies depending on the soil & water. Though hollyhocks are drought tolerant for sure!
Attracting bees, hummingbirds, butterflies and all sorts of beneficial insects to your garden.
Did you know that drawing beneficial insects to your garden with various flowers & herbs is a natural & non-harmful way to keep "bad" bugs at bay?
In other words..... when you plant herbs & flowers amongst your vegetable plants you will be attracting insects like lady bugs, praying mantis, lacewings, soldier beetles, etc..... These beneficial insects love to eat things like aphids & other plant devourers. So instead of the pesky pests eating up your garden & your food the good bugs will be dining on them instead :)
Perhaps many people already know this fact but for the new gardener or one who is accustomed to using chemical pesticides and herbicides this is a good thing to know. When we use man-made chemicals in our gardens we hurt the beneficial insects (including bees, which we need for pollination & honey, etc....) & all those chemicals DO end up going into the ground & possibly the ground-water, streams, rivers, lakes & oceans eventually. This is harmful both short-term & long-term to people and animals as well. I highly recommend learning organic & natural gardening methods to be good stewards of the land entrusted to our care. With the internet we have at our fingertips it is VERY easy to get educated on these natural methods of gardening.
The plants don't require a lot of watering as they are drought-resistant; however, they do prefer well-drained soil in sunny spots.
Though these plants are drought-tolerant ,keep your plants watered on a more regular basis for larger blooms .
Easy to grow, easy to maintain, and so pretty..... a true classic, growing to 3-6 feet tall.
Plant your seeds at least 5 inches apart & do not crowd the plants.
They are great for: flower beds, fences, borders, around trees, mailbox, anywhere around your home!
You can expect the flowers to continue for several weeks and the seeds are also a breeze to harvest so you can plant more next year or share with friends.
To harvest the seeds wait til the round seed pods are thoroughly dried then just peel back the sides of the pod, which should give easily, & most of the time the seeds will simply "pop" out. Sometimes the seeds will stay together - either way - be prepared to catch them & place them in a clean dry container or little bag.
My recommendation is to make sure your seeds are THOROUGHLY dried before closing your container or bag so no mold grows.......store them in a cool dry place until planting time the following year....... and ENJOY!
My usual shipping time is 1-3 days from order placement/ receipt of payment.
