Alcea. A cottage garden classic. Tall spikes add
height to the bed and evoke a nostalgic feeling. The
blooms can be double or single in a wide variety of
colours. Hollyhock is a biennial that reseeds itself.
Culture: Start in large plugs, 6 weeks before planting
outdoors, or direct seed outdoors when soil is about
18-21C. Soaking the seed for 4-24 hours before
sowing will help germination.
