I recently purchased Country Hollyhock seeds. When should I plant them and how soon after planting will they bloom?

Hollyhocks are considered to be biennials, meaning they bloom the second year, set seed and then usually die off. (Sometimes a plant will last longer, but not always.) The new crop of seedlings will grow that summer, then bloom the following year so you have an ongoing patch. You can start the seeds in spring or summer so that you will have blooms the next year.
