Alcea (Hollyhock) Growing Tips
  • Hollyhocks are easy to cultivate plants that prefer full sunlight and a well-drained fertile
    soil.  
  • These plants prefer a well balanced loam, but will create attractive displays in well-
    draining clay and sandy soils as well.
  • In light soils incorporate compost into the planting hole for moisture consistency and to
    feed a growing plant.  
  • An annual side-dressing of compost or like organic fertilizer in fall is beneficial for
    optimum blooming displays the following year.  
  • After blooming the flowering stalks can be cut down to the basal rosette of leaves and
    discarded of.
