The Q&A Archives: Hollyhock Seeds

Question: I just harvested hollyhock seeds from my garden and have stored them. Would it be best to soak the seeds before planting them next year, or just plant them as is?

Answer: In my experience hollyhock seeds germinate quickly at normal room temperatures without any special treatment. In fact, they will self sow in my garden if I am slow to deadhead the plants. Good luck with your hollyhocks!
