Hollyhock Giant single mixed seeds produce cup-shaped open flowers in glorious shades of pink, yellow, purple, and red. These majestic tall and stately plants have been described as the backbone of the cottage garden. Hollyhock is very easy to grow with a long blooming season, and is excellent for hiding unsightly places.

Approx. 30 seeds

 

Sow indoors for surest results, March-May, 1.5cm (½”) deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, unheated greenhouse, or on a warm kitchen windowsill. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 21-28 days. Transplant individually, when large enough to handle, to 7.5cm (3") pots. Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out into well-drained soil, June-October, 60cm (2') apart.
Sow outdoors, May-July, in a seed bed, 0.5cm (¼") deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 7.5cm (3") apart, before planting out to flowering position in autumn. Flowers: June-August, the following year.
In cold areas, the young plants will benefit from some cloche protection in the worst of the winter weather.
Plant in an area with good air circulation to help prevent rust.
