I have a love affair going on with Hollyhocks, I can never, ever have too many of them. Majestic spires and beautiful colours…. a true country cottage favourite to me, the butterflies and the bees!

This mix contains Nigra, Summer Carnival, and various shades of pink. All utterly gorgeous and statuesque….the perfect nostalgic flower.

Seed Quantity: 50 Seeds

Type: Perennial

Genus: Alcea rosea

Sow Seeds: I find it best to sow the seeds in June into seed trays, pot on when bigger and then plant them out into the garden in September to flower the following late spring/early summer. You can just sow them directly into position in May-June if you prefer.  Cover the seeds only very lightly as they need light to germinate. These are tall plants and need space so place 2 feet apart when planting out. Grow them up against walls and fences or stake them to protect them from the wind.

Plant Out: Pot on once large enough to handle and then plant out where they are to grow in September.  Will flower the following year.  Tall plants for the back of a border or against a wall

Flowers: April - July

Height & Spread: 2.5m high x 60cm spread

These seeds are also found in the following Seed Collections:
