Carnival seeds

Saving Seed: Saving squash seed is challenging! We list three species of the genus Cucurbita: C. pepo, C. maxima and C. moschata. Varieties of the same species will cross readily, but crossing will not occur between the different species. You must isolate varieties of the same species by half a mile if you want true-to-type seed. This is difficult for most gardeners—you may have to communicate and collaborate with neighboring gardeners, or exclude insects from blossoms and hand-pollinate. If you can pull off the variety isolation, processing the seeds is easy: rinse seeds from the guts of fully ripe and cured squash. Dry and store.

For the latest results of our germination tests, please see the germination page.

Cucurbita pepo

Pest: Striped Cucumber Beetle
Cultural controls: use tolerant or resistant varieties, rotate crops, till under crop debris soon after harvest, use floating row covers until flowers appear, use plastic mulch, perimeter trap cropping (Black Zucchini and Blue Hubbard make particularly good trap crops), use yellow sticky strips, hand-pick early morning when beetles are very sluggish.
Materials: Surround, Pyrethrum (PyGanic).

Winter Squash

Disease: Bacterial Wilt
Cultural control: Striped Cucumber Beetle is vector—control it; choose resistant varieties.

Tips: Rust is a common problem attacking hollyhocks. To prevent this issue, be sure to water from below, treat with fungicide and make sure the plant has good air circulation.

Days to Maturity: Hollyhocks will bloom all summer long, however have a short blooming period.

Before Planting: Direct sow hollyhock seeds outdoors a week before the last frost date. However, if you are planting from seedlings, wait until two or three weeks after the last frost to transplant them outdoors.

"Agriculture and seeds" provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, we pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants.

Shipping Schedule

Fertilizer: Hollyhocks do not require a lot of added nutrition, but some extra fertilizer or compost may aid in growth a bit.

Planting: Plant seeds only 1/4 inch deep and space them at least two feet apart.

Harvesting: When cutting hollyhock stems to add to a bouquet, the flowers will stay fresh longer if you cauterize the bottom of the stem.

Our Seed Promise

Watering: Water regularly to keep the soil moist.

Hollyhocks are an impressively beautiful flower with stalks that can reach up to nine feet tall. The added vertical element will create a unique appeal to your garden.
