Most of the flowers in our garden are sown by Nature. We like to attract lots of Bees

Hello Grey Eagle. We have these in our garden right now flowering. I bought them way back April and never had them before. Diddn't realize they grew so tall. Our are over 2 meters high and still going higher.I have them staked so they don't fall over. Next year I will grow them in different place in the garden against a fence for some protection and something to lean against. Great shot you have and nice colour.Best Regards,David.

Hi David, good idea to stake Hollyhocks.

To give support, I buy 2m long 10mm diameter steel bars (Try your local DIY store), sharpen one end like a dart point. One for every plant driven deep into the ground with a lump hammer, gives good support, you can leave them in place year around. Just sit back and watch more grow from the seeds sown by birds.

PS: In our garden it's often the flower that decides where they would like to grow. :)))
