Product description

Renee's Garden - These antique hollyhocks provide old-fashioned beauty to any country-style garden. The tall stems bear mostly single blossoms in classic hollyhock colors of deep rose, pink, salmon-pink, and white. Grow as a screen at the back of the garden and watch the towering spires of pointed buds slowly unfurl to reveal chalice-shaped flowers — the dancing gowns of flower garden fairies. (Alcea rosea)

    Instructions - To start in the garden, plant seeds in full sun in ordinary garden soil in spring after the danger of frost is past. Poke seeds into well-worked soil about 1/2 inch deep, 6 to 8 inches apart. Keep moist until seedlings emerge in 7 to 14 days.

    To start early indoors, start seeds indoors about 8 weeks before the last expected frost date. Sow two inches apart and 1/2 inch deep in flats or individual containers of seed starting mix. Provide a strong light source and keep the mix evenly moist until germination takes place. When seedlings are 3 to 4 inches tall, transplant them 12 to 18 inches apart after gradually acclimating to outdoor conditions. 

    Space seedlings 12 to 18 inches apart so plants have ample room to mature. Indian Spring will bloom the first year from seed if planted early in spring. Planted later, it will bloom the following summer. After blossoms fade, cut off the spent flower stalks just above the ground. Fertilize well and continue to water plants as needed, and roots will push another flush of enchanting flower spires that will open in the fall.
