I have quite a few seeds from a single hollyhock. When should they be planted, now or in the spring? I live in NY state, think it's zone 5.

Hey Welcome Aboard fellow New Yorker!!
We're glad you found us...

I have hollyhocks, and the dried seed would normally fall to the ground just about now, and
then take root now.. *and then come spring time,
will send up the main stalk for the flowers*
(they are a biennial and will send out roots and leaves the first year, then send up flower stalks the next year)

So, I would do them now..

*You can do both too if you want..
save some and plant them in the spring and then you will always have one's coming up..*

Try planting them several ways too, to see which is easiest for you...

I take the stalks and just shake on top of some freshly raked dirt *no grass or anything on top of the soil*...
and then I also plant some on top of some regular garden soil in some 6 pk containers...
and then leave them on the ground, and the snow
will cover them up...

See which way is easiest for you and the seeds...
