Two-year summer flowers

Now is the time to sow two-year summer flowers such as hollyhocks and foxgloves. They regularly saw themselves in late summer but often flourish in other colors then. Who wants to achieve a certain color effect should therefore better buy seeds. The seeds are placed separately in a planter with soil, covered with some more soil and lightly pressed. Some weeks later, the seedlings can be transplanted into pots. In September the seedlings are placed in a flower bed where they spend the winter and bloom next year.
