Hollyhock Box - See You in the Spring Maybe

Well, I'll Be - They are Here Already

My hubby likes hollyhocks, so we got some seeds. Some from his mom, and some from Fleet Farm.

Since our planter box is by our deck, we decided to plant them in it. This last year it was filled with plants that grew from the bird seed dropped from our bird feeders.

Not much science here. Just sprinkle the seeds on the dirt, and cover with mulch.

I Planted Them Thick and Heavy

This is our mulch pile. Since we have a lawn vaccum, we have a pile in the corner of our property where we empty the vaccum bag.
