Can I start holly hock and columbine seeds now and plant them when they start sprouting this spring?

Yes you can plant the holly hock seed now & transplant them when they get about 6 inches tall. Keep damp when not raining. You will be proud. Some do not bloom first year. They reseed every year after they bloom, you can also transplant them & you can save the seed when the pod gets dry, just before the seed falls out, good luck.

My Mom lives in Texas and plants her Hollyhock seeds in the fall as does my Mom-in-law in Missouri. Each year, they should come back from the seeds that drop in the fall from the plants.
Hope you have great luck with the old fashioned favorites!
Hollyhocks are biennials, so won't bloom until the second year. (11/10/2008)
