Anybody can suggest me any practical method to produce following Hydroxy Benzaldehydes starting from Benzaldehyde.

1. Mono Hydroxy Benzaldehyde.
2. Dihydroxy Benzaldehyde. ( What will the composition of Ortho & Para).

1. Mono Hydroxy Benzaldehyde.
see Reimer-Tiemann reaction - synthesis from phenol
Synthesis from benzaldehyde will be quite difficult.

The same method may be used for dihydroxybenzenes
