How to Plant Hollyhock Seeds

Sow hollyhock seeds in 2 inch pots or cell packs, press into soil and lightly cover. Kept at 70-75° F., germination is in 14-28 days. Can direct sow into prepared seed beds in groups of 3-4 seeds, spaced 2-3 feet apart. Thin to strongest plant. See Starting Your Seeds for more information.

Growing hollyhocks: Full sun; part sun in hottest climates. Hollyhock plants perform best in fertile soil with regular moisture. Irrigate from below and provide good air circulation. True perennial hollyhocks noted in description; most are biennials, or short-lived perennials. Many hollyhocks flower the first season when started early. After flowering, cut back plants hard, to within a few inches of the ground. Continue to water and fertilize; plants repeat bloom in late summer and fall. Single flower hollyhocks attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Hollyhock plants will often self sow.
