Seeds Started Now Come Up Quickly!

The package of broccoli seeds that the back of the envelope said would take 7 days to emerge have emerged and have been transplanted into individual pots. They seem to love the heat.

Rudbeckia hirta is the Latin name of Black Eyed Susans. I bought two new varieties and planted the seeds this week.
The Rudbeckia Hirta Cherry Brandy seeds were predicted to take 2 to 3 weeks and came up in less than a week.
Ditto for the Rudbeckia hirta Chocolate Orange. Almost every one of the 50 seed cups has a green tip in less than a week.
Slow by comparison is the Heuchera Marvelous Marbles. They have not emerged. Not a one. They are supposed to take 10 to 60 days but the way things are going I expect them to be up soon. says "Marvelous Marble is the first Heuchera with very short flower stems. It is a gorgeous foliage plant, performing well in spring, summer and autumn. In the spring, the foliage is a nice purple and during the year, the leaves change to green with very distinct dark veins. Creamy white flowers form earlier than other Heuchera varieties. Grows up to about 2 feet in height and width. Zones 4-9."

The white hollyhocks grew to over 5 feet tall and were free of that pesky mold hollyhocks sometimes get. I'm going harvest the seeds. Email to get my address if you want to send an SASE to receive FREE SEEDS of the white hollyhock.
