800 mg (~50 seeds)

Transform your garden into a garden of the past! An English garden of the early 1800s would have several varieties of hollyhock. ‘Indian Spring’ is known to flower in its first season from seed. Even though fairly drought tolerant, it performs best with ample moisture and deep, rich soil for best performance. See instructions inside for making old-fashioned hollyhock dolls. Hollyhock flowers are edible, but very bland; however, the large, colorful petals are lovely garnishing salads or desserts. (The flower’s central disk, while edible, can be bitter.) A 1939 All-America Selections winner.

Harvesting: For longest-lasting cut flowers, harvest when 1/3 of the flowers on the stem have opened. Harvest in the morning; cut stem at an angle and immediately place in a bucket of warm water. Before placing in a vase, dip the stem end in boiling water for a minute, or sear it over a flame for 20 seconds; this will stop the flow of the milky sap so it does not clog the stem.

    I received them really quickly for the distance they were shipped. Just planted them a week ago though so I can’t attest to the seed yet. No reason to think they won’t grow.
