Day 201 – 20th July – Long term planting

Day 201 20180720

Today I planted out the multitude of Hollyhocks that had grown from seed earlier in the year. And this is all I will get from them this year. They will establish themselves and hopefully it won’t be a winter that will kill them off. Then, next year I should hopefully get loads of them growing and flowering. They’ve been planted in groups of 4 or 5 so that they can be easily supported as if they grow to the size of the original plant, they will be over 6 foot. Interestingly one that I had more or less given up on planted a few years back has suddenly come to life, so I’ll look forward to getting some seeds from that this year and hopefully I’ll end up with a nice mix of the two in a few years time.
