Hollyhocks I grew from seeds.. I think they bloom the 2nd year from seeds.
Nicest ones I ever had. Guess they love the rain.. My tomatoes dislike rain.


Any one else do these?

You need to start new ones every coupl years.

If they reseed themselves why do they need to be replanted?

I wonder if something happened to her....You know no one would think to let anyone here know.

I think I will write her a letter (If I can find her address back.)

I looked up her email on Facebook and it did return one person, but it doesn't look like the account had been active (unless someone set it to show all new content only to friends).

dodge did set up a FB account but she's never used it. I'll email her and tell her everyone is asking about her.

I'd love to help her, but I'd need to specifically know why the forum won't let her in... The login page works since the rest of us are in...

Yea I thought so but I was not sure, so I left it alone.

Why not buy some peat pots (I believe Jiffy Pots is one brand.) and then plant them inside. Then later you can decide where to put them outide w/o disturbing them......The pots come in different sizes & shapes.
