I was going through the grocery aisles one day when I randomly found myself in the gardening section. They had some really good deals on outdoor furniture and decorations so I just had to look around.
Next thing I knew, I was standing in front of those seed packet displays, deciding which flower I would like to try planting. I ended up buying 4 different packets of seeds, a couple of peat pots, and some potting soil discs, all of which were at least 30% off.
I don't know anything about gardening but looking at the lovely photos that adorned those seed packets somehow made me feel like I could do it. How hard could it be anyway, I thought to myself.
For next couple of days, I found myself researching about the flower seeds I bought and as it turns out, I wouldn't be able to plant them until Spring. There were 2 flower seeds that I could sow for Fall though so I started with the Hollyhock packet.
3 weeks have passed and to my surprise, my Hollyhock seedlings are still doing great! Not all of the seeds sprouted but I guess that was to be expected. I hope that they will make it when I transplant them in their proper places in our garden this Fall. I've read that some varieties don't really bloom until their second year but since the ones I bought are supposed to be perennial, I hope they would bloom next summer. Below, you can find my little potted wonders and a photo of our pear tree:
