A couple of weeks ago, I visited our local Farmer’s Market with my mother and my two youngest kids. Along with the fresh produce, bakery items, ice cream cones, kettle corn, petting zoo and other tempting treats – I happened across a vendor who was selling a small selection of nursery plants.
To be honest, what attracted me to her area wasn’t the plants, but it was a vase of hollyhocks that she had displayed.
Now, I love hollyhocks. There is just something so beautiful about these old-fashioned flowers.

Okay, back to the bouquet of hollyhocks that I saw at the farmer’s market – they were white with light pink centers.
As I was admiring the simple, but very pretty bouquet, I noticed that there was a small stack of envelopes filled with hollyhock seeds.
For only $1, it was my favorite purchase of the day.
I can’t wait to plant them.
I have the perfect place that receives afternoon sun and receives carryover moisture from my vegetable garden.
How about you? Where do you plant your hollyhocks?
