hollyhock seeds

Anonymous added on July 3, 2015 | Answered

Neighbor has wild hollyhock and we have taken some wilted flowers and seed pods to plant. Is it too late to plant or should we just dry out like Iris bulbs? Also, do we break open the pods to get to the seed?

Though you can try direct planting some of the seeds now, it may be better to wait since it's so late in the season. These articles will help with both storing and growing your hollyhock seeds: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/seeds/storing-seeds.htm
