Seed Swaps

Hollyhock, 'Chaters Double Mix'     

Hollyhocks are one of my favourite flowers. They remind me of my first childhood home and also of my grandmothers’ and aunts’ backyards. I last successfully grew them when I lived in an old neighborhood in Detroit. That was 25 years ago. SInce then, I have had a hard time keeping the seedlings alive to maturity. I am hoping for better luck this year.
