    This specially selected hollyhock mix features frilly double flowers in in a range of vivid colours that flower throughout summer. They are super-tough, easy to grow, and will provide lashings of summer colour.

    Please note: Rust is a very common problem on hollyhocks, and unless the plants have been sprayed intensively with fungicides, it is rare to see one that will not have been affected. We keep beehives here on our nursery, so we try to keep the use of chemicals to a minimum - and in our experience, while hollyhock rust may look a little unsightly towards the end of summer, it rarely has an impact on the plants impressive performance.

    Grown in individual plug cells, each plant measures about 5 - 7cm tall (from the base of the root to the top of the plant). They are ideal for keen gardeners who have a greenhouse where the plants can be plants can be grown on until they are ready for planting out in the garden once all chance of frost has passed.
