Planting and care

  • Planting hollyhock may be done in spring or fall. Select a sunny location sheltered from the wind.
  • Spring plantings will be safer in areas where winters are severe. Plant as soon as nursery stock is received. If plantings must be delayed, place the hollyhock in a cool, shaded area and keep the roots moist.
  • Hollyhock seedlings are grown in a special planting mixture to promote fast growth. Do not pull this material away from the roots, but set the top of the planting material level with the soil line.
  • Firm the soil around the plants and roots by pressing the soil with your hands.
  • Water well to eliminate air pockets that may form around the roots.

    Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
    Full sun (Can tolerate partial shade for sometime) Rich, well drained soil Water as needed to keep the soil moist at all times. 16 to 28 degrees C Adding a general purpose fertilizer once a month will result in bigger, fuller blooms.

    Caring for Hollyhock Malva

    • After the growing season is over, Hollyhock should be cut back to ground level.
    • To assure that the plant does not get killed out completely, cover the area with mulch, in case the winter is real harsh.
    • Look for an insect attack and can be treated with insecticides and insecticidal soaps.
