HOLLYHOCK

Post by Muhammad Arif Khan » June 30th, 2011, 11:31 am

We normally sow Hollyhock in September for flowers in spring. Two weeks ago I found many seedlings growing in the old bed. I have removed most and left some to observe how they perfom
WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Many Hollyhocks planted in summer form rosette initially for an year and send blooming shoots by next year.. they will live for 3 years...

I'm doing this science project and the teacher gave me these two hollyhock seeds to grow.One under the lamp and one besides the window.My teacher just told me to keep the soil moist so I did that.But for the past 7 days they don't seem to sprout and I got to hand the report and the two plants back to the teacher in the 10th day o.o....My house is not that hot or cold but pretty normal.Am I doing something wrong or they just grow really slow??

This is not the time to sow hollyhock seeds due to higher temperatures....Anyways

How deep did you sow the seeds?
They may take longer some time
Were the seeds viable?
