The hollyhock pictured is growing in a large container. We have grown a wide variety of hollyhocks this way, have been pleased by the good results. When you grow hollyhocks in large containers, it is easy to keep foliage dry. Plants show more resistance to disease than hollyhocks grown in the ground and leaves are less accessible and attractive to crawling critters. With hollyhocks grown in large containers maintenance of any kind is less of a chore: goodbye to bending to the ground, plants are easily approached from all sides, and fertilizer is easy to apply.

How to Plant Hollyhock Seeds

Bee introduces how to plant

Sow Hollyhocks: Sow seeds in 2 in. 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 ft. apart. Thin to strongest plant.

Grow 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 in. 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.
