I start seeds of hollyhock, salvia, cool weather vegetables such as kale and lettuce as well as others in the shed to have them ready for planting outside on or around April 15th.
Hollyhocks are biennial and usually do not bloom the year they are seeded. I've found that growing them from seed in the shed, they do bloom their first year in the ground.
The bakers rack sits under a skylight so when it's cloudy outside the plants receive only filtered light. The plants on it include begonias, succulents and others that prefer not to be under the electric lights.
