Transplant a Blooming Hollyhock and seedling 101A

maggie_berry(z6CT)July 4, 2007


I have a beautiful Hollyhock in bloom that I would like to transplant to a new garden.

I understand that Hollyhock has a taproot and should not be moved.

I was wondering if I waited until the fall, would the plant survive the move.

Also, if I can not move this plant can I catch the seeds and plant them in the new bed.

Will I see seedlings this fall if I water the seeds and baby them?

Or would you just sprinkle the seeds and let winter and mother nature take over?

You certainly don't need to baby hollyhock seeds. I always get a few seedlings without doing anything at all.

Hollyhocks are short lived perennials, so you always want to let some reseed. I doubt you'll have luck moving a mature plant, even in the fall.

Thank you both so much, I will leave the mother plant and sprinkle the seeds in the new bed.
