Mary, Mary, how does your garden grow ?? Well, if you do nothing at all, your hollyhock seeds will drop in place and many will germinate right there. Being biennials, they may or may not bloom the following year but after developing during year 1,( during which they may also be transplanted to another location, if desired )come year 2, you will have colour galore, and so on year after year ad infinitum ! Relax, enjoy !!!

I would like to start my holly hock seed in styrofoam cups and let them grow most of the summer in morning sun, then transplant them in the fall. I did this for my shasta daisies and it worked great. Is this possible? Thanks

This is for Shirley. The difficulty with growing hollyhocks in coffee cups is that hollyhocks are plants that develop tap roots, long roots that head straight down. If you grow them in a coffee cup, they won't have room to develop their roots.
