|Should I start seeds for biennials indoors in early spring or should I wait until fall? I want to plant foxgloves, forget-me-nots, campanulas and hollyhocks. I live in Zone 5. Thanks.

|You can start them indoors 6-8 weeks before transplanting outside after the last frost. Sometimes hollyhocks don't transplant that well because they quickly develop a long root, so you might want to save some of those seeds to sow directly into the soil when it warms up.
