Lupines! Grown from seed

Those starry petalled leaves are none other than native lupines - and the beginning spikes with many purple flowers.  The bees will be pleased... these are behind the northernmost bench on the boulevards.
These were started indoors in a classroom 2 years ago and just take time to really establish themselves.
The hollyhocks grown from seed in a class are bi-annuals, they bloomed last year by the annex.  It looks like we are going to get another year from them - tri-annuals?

We have corn, pumpkin, calendula and butterfly vine seeds that will soon need help.
You can volunteer even without a green thumb!  generalwolfegardens@gmail.com
