Hollyhocks should be sown at a depth of 1/4". The number depends on how you want them. For a grouping, plant half a dozen or so close together. Hollyhocks must establish a root system first, and then they can produce the stalk(s) of flowers we all love so much. Often they are planted in the fall to give them a chance to establish a root system during the winter months. While other plants are loafing and going into dormancy, the hollyhock foliage is still green!


When spring arrives, your fall planted babies will burst into growing and produce blooms that summer. This is why most people plant them in the fall, but it is not a must. It is vital that you keep your baby hocks watered regularly to ensure a strong and healthy root system to carry it through the winter cold. FYI: Spring planted Hollyhocks won't typically get full bloomage until the following year,good luck.
