A country garden favourite, hollyhocks add height and whimsy to the back of the garden border. These mid-summer bloomers produce numerous flowers along tall spires. Nothing else epitomizes mid-summer magic in the garden quite like hollyhocks.

Plant type: biennial  

Height: 5-6'

Planting depth: 1/4”

Exposure: full sun 

Plant spacing: 2-3'  

Approx seeds per packet: 50

How to sow: 

Sow seeds from late spring to early summer. Plant outdoors a minimum of 6 weeks before first frost. Plants will overwinter and bloom the following summer. May also be direct sown from early to mid summer. Pinching not necessary.

Care:

Hollyhocks are best enjoyed in the garden, rather than as a cut flower, although they may be used as an event cut flower where a long vase life is not a necessity. Cut back plants after initial blooming to encourage a second flush of blooms.
