19. Direct sow in the soil

I was watching gardeners World, learning from the comfort of my couch and I saw an clip of a man growing hundreds of Hollyhocks and I was immediately swept away to France. When watching any gardening program or YouTube I generally have a pen and paper to hand to right down the name of plants or what jobs I can do in the garden. This time I was naughty and just popped on Sarah Raven website and treated myself to some seeds.

Hollyhocks, according to the expert, are easy to grow. They need full sun, good drainage and a wee bit of support! They don’t sound that easy but he said just throw them anywhere and they will grow so I am direct sowing them and hopefully we will get gorgeous blooms. They are going in a nice sunny spot, with good drainage and a support for them incase it is windy.

I have tried growing them before, when I didn’t research their needs enough. Hopefully I will have more luck this time. It would be nice to have a bit of France in my garden.

About DP

Hi, I am Dana. I am dyspraxic trying to function and get organised in my dysfunctional world. I don’t shy away from technology but I do have a preference for all things paper and analog. I am trying to organise our lives through my bullet journal, travel around the globe and save money!!! Impossible I know. I have a hard time believing that you should spend a fortune on one day. So, with my creative skills and frugality I will hopefully create my dream wedding without getting into debt. My bullet journal has been a life saver, so much that I now have 3. One for life, one for wedding planning and my last for this blog. I am lost without them. I have a wonderful partner, two fur babies ( Manhattan and Frank) a full time job that I love and my love of blogging. Please bear with me with my spelling and grammar I do proof read about 4 times but I still miss things. I won’t be offended if you correct me. So that’s me, I draw and teach art to both kids and adults and I believe anyone can create anything you just have to practice. I have had to try and try at organising, that is why I am the Dysfunctional Planner.
