How to plant bare root Hollyhocks

Growing Hollyhocks from bare roots offers the advantage of flowering in the first season, bypassing the year-long wait required when starting from seeds.

Today, we're excited to plant our bare root Hollyhocks from our friends at Blomster Verden.

Hollyhocks (Alcea) are cherished in cottage gardens for their stunning pink, white, and yellow blooms that soar on tall spikes, reaching heights of up to 6 feet.

Supported by robust stems, these blooms rest atop sturdy foliage that gradually tapers towards the stalk's peak. Ideal for adding both height and allure to back borders or for lining fences and walls, Hollyhocks' blossoms serve as delightful cut flowers and can be preserved for arrangements.

Join me as I demonstrate just how simple it is to cultivate them from bare roots in the video above.
