The best way we find to grow hollyhock is to sow these directly in your garden, in the fall, at least two weeks before your first frost. Work enriched garden soil 6" deep and scatter your seeds and then top with a light dusting of compost or peat. The seeds will germinate, and develop roots over winter, and flower the following spring and summer. The last picture is a hollyhock that is about 30 days old direct seeded in the garden on October 1st.

You can also start these in winter indoors about 8 weeks before your last frost in spring in 4" pots. After your last frost in the spring transplant them into your garden and they will bloom flowers a little later than fall planted hollyhock.

Finally you can also sow these in the spring directly in your garden. They will germinate, and grow, but will probably not bloom until the next spring and summer.

These hollyhock are different in that they will come back and flower the following year. In the fall after your first frost cut them to the ground. A quick note about hollyhock and a fungus called Rust. Even though the Antwerp fig leaf are known for being Rust resistant Hollyhock are very susceptible to Rust and we recommend you dust your garden area (after tilling your soil) prior to sowing your seeds with dustable sulfer, which you can get at any home improvement or garden center. In zone 7, in mid march about a month before our last frost, we dust them again just to make sure we don't have any problems with Rust during the summer.
