Hollyhock Planting and Care Guide

 Quick Facts About Hollyhock

Hollyhocks are old-fashioned favorites that are often associated with a cottage style garden. They're perfect for the back of the border due to their height, and they have masses of open, bee-friendly blooms. Hummingbirds will find them too! Hollyhocks are typically considered to be short-lived perennials. The first year of growth is foliage and root development. The second year they bloom profusely, and then they die back.

 Planting Time

Directly sow Hollyhock seeds in the early spring when there is still a frost expected. Or, start the flower seeds indoors 8 - 10 weeks prior to the end of frost season. Both of these sowing times will produce foliage/root growth the first year and blooms the second year. If living in a mild climate, the Hollyhock seeds can be started in the fall. Fall plantings will typically produce plants that bloom the following summer.

 Planting Location

Plant Hollyhocks in full sun and in moist, well-draining soil. Because of their height, they should be located in the back of the garden. The tallest varieties are not suitable for containers.

 How to Plant Hollyhock

  • Hollyhocks do have a tough seed coat, so a soak in tepid water for 12 hours prior to planting is helpful
  • For indoor sowing, start Hollyhock seeds in peat pots filled with soil
  • Press the seed into the soil, but it does need light for germination, so do not cover
  • Keep the seeds moist and warm for germination
  • Place seedlings in a bright sunny window or under grow light for continued growth
  • Once temperatures have warmed up outdoors, harden off the Hollyhock plants for 7 - 10 days prior to planting out
  • Hollyhocks form a deep root, so it's possible that the entire peat pot will need to be planted
  • Or, for outdoor sowing, weed and prepare the soil to a depth of 6 - 8 inches
  • Add compost to improve the soil
  • Firm the seed bed and press the Hollyhock seed into the soil gently
  • Allow the area to stay moist

 Care And Maintenance

  • Hollyhocks prefer moist soil for establishment and during their bloom time
  • Provide stakes or support of some kind for areas that are not protected from the wind
  • After blooming, deadheading will prevent self-sowing
  • If self-sowing is desired, leave the tall stems in place, but cut them back hard in the fall
  • Mulch in the winter is helpful to provide protection

How Much Seed Do I Need?

1. Measure

For Squares or Rectangles: measure the length and width of the space where you want to plant. 

For Circles: find the radius - measure the widest part of your planting space and divide by 2.

2. Calculate Square Footage

Square Foot Calculations

For Squares or Rectangles:  length (in feet)  x  width (in feet) = square feet

For example, a garden that measures 50 feet x 30 feet = 1500 sq. ft.

For Circles:   radius (in feet) x  radius  x 3.14 = square feet

For example, a circular garden that is 20 feet across has a radius of 10 feet. 10 x 10 x 3.14 = 314 sq. ft.

(The mathematical formula for the area of a circle is Π · r2 - the Π symbol is pronounced Pi and represents approximately 3.142, and r2 stands for radius squared.)

3. Find How Much Seed You Need

The amount of seed you should plant depends on the flower display you want. We typically recommend planting on the higher side for a lush meadow. Plant on the lower side for a more scattered look. 

For Individual Species: The recommended rates vary greatly from species to species. Check the product page, or contact us with questions.

For Wildflower Mixes: Reference the table below.

This Much Seed Covers... This Much Square Footage
1/4 lb 250 - 500 sq. ft.
1/2 lb 500 - 1,000 sq. ft.
1 lb 1,000 - 2,000 sq. ft.
5 lbs 5,000 - 10,000 sq. ft.
10 lbs 10,000 - 25,000 sq. ft.
  • 1 Acre = 43,000 sq.ft.
  • 1/2 Acre = 21,500 sq. ft.
  • 1/4 Acre = 10,750 sq.ft.
  • 1/10 Acre = 4,300 sq. ft.

Tips For Larger Plantings: If you have a large site, from 1/2 acre to several acres, your planting rate may be affected by land conditions. If you have heavy weeds on the site now, some erosion, generally poor soil, or other land problems, additional seed is usually the most economical solution, since installation of a large planting usually costs more than the seed itself. If your site does have these problems and you want full coverage, use 1 pound per 1000 sq. ft.
