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: Full sun (Can tolerate partial shade for sometime)
    Soil: Rich, well drained soil
    Water: Water as needed to keep the soil moist at all times.
    Temperature: 16 to 28 degrees C
    Fertilizer: 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.
