Description and growing guide: Seed Description: Giant hollyhock seeds are larger than average and are typically black or dark brown in color. They are relatively easy to handle and sow. Every seed pod contains approx 50 seeds. When to Plant: Hollyhock seeds can be sown in autumn or spring. Autumn planting allows the seeds to experience a period of cold stratification, which can improve germination rates. Spring planting should be done as soon as the soil can be worked. Soil Preparation: Hollyhocks prefer a rich, well-draining soil with a pH between 6.0 and 7.0. Amend the soil with compost or well-rotted manure prior to planting. Hollyhocks are also heavy feeders, so it's a good idea to fertilize the soil before planting. Planting: Sow the seeds 50 mm deep and to 30 to 40 cm apart. Water the soil thoroughly after planting. Keep the soil evenly moist until the seeds germinate. Care: Hollyhocks require regular watering, especially during hot, dry periods. Mulching around the plants can help retain moisture in the soil. Hollyhocks also benefit from staking, as their tall flower spikes can become top-heavy and flop over. Pests and Diseases: Hollyhocks are relatively pest-free, but they can be susceptible to rust disease. To prevent rust, avoid overhead watering and provide good air circulation around the plants. Taking off the lower leaves can help. Harvesting: Hollyhocks are grown for their flowers, which can be harvested when they are fully open but before they begin to fade. Cut the flower spikes just above a leaf node. Excellent cut flower. Saving Seeds: Hollyhocks will self-sow if allowed to go to seed. To save seeds, allow the flowers to fade and dry on the plant. Once the seed pods have turned brown and are starting to split open, harvest the pods and remove the seeds. Store the seeds in a cool, dry place until ready to plant. With these simple steps, you can easily grow giant hollyhocks from seed and enjoy their towering beauty in your garden for years to come. Our gift boxes filled with flower seeds are ideal for gifting at baby showers, weddings, hens parties, birthdays, and any other garden celebrations.
