Can't you just hear the bees buzzing when you look at that pic!

So do I collect the seed pods now or wait?  Do I split the pods open or plant them as they are?  And would it be ok to just plant them in pots in ordinary compost to wait for next Spring?  I sound like a complete idiot but I've waited for years to have hollyhocks and would like to have them again, if I can.  I don't have a greenhouse or shed, by the way.

Thanks,

Una.

I've had hollyhocks this year for the first time ever.  Is it possible to plant the seeds once they've died back and grow some more?  They have a lot of what appear to be seed pods.

Thanks,

Una.

Well I live in London so our winters aren't too severe.  But it survives quite happily in the front garden, no special protection or anything like that.  It's evergreen and just suddenly springs back to life in late spring.  Very easy - no care at all really.

It is a pieris - I have one of these planted in ordinary garden soil and it's doing really well.

Thanks for your help.

Geoff - thanks for the suggestion but how would we do that?

Lottyh40 - I think we're out of luck.  I've had no response to my msg above.

They are selling them in B&Q for £5.98 a pot but they're a bit skimpy looking - not a lot in each pot. 

If anybody knows where I'd get some at a cheaper price, I'd love to know.  I live in West London - thanks.

Thanks Geoff - I've sent a msg and hope for a positive response.  Would it be worth trying to grow some in compost in a pot, do you think?

Thanks again,

Una.
