$6.50Price

Magnificent, tall growing plants with double flowers in colours from reds to pinks through to oranges and yellows  Hollyhocks are easy to grow and perfect for planting in groups at the back of a sunny border. For best results, grow in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Plant height 1.5m.

 

Chater's Double Mix hollyhocks are biennials or short-lived perennials. 

 

Hollyhocks wiil grow under Black Walnut trees; they are tolerant of the toxic juglone that is emitted through the trees' roots.

 

Excellent cut flower but they must be conditioned correctly.  Hollyhocks have hollow stems which need to be filled with room temperature water immediately after being harvested.  Plug the stem with cotton wool.  To eliminate small air bubbles, pierce the stem with a pin just below the flower head. If flowers stems are recut, you will need to repeat this process.  Let stand over night before using.
