Hollyhock in container?
Last year I planted hollyhocks in our back yard and this year they bloomed wonderfully. However as soon as they became heavy with blooms the spider mites moved in and they started flopping. I suspect the major flopping was due to limited sun and water runoff from the lawn. Also I have roses planted relatively close by so the spider mite issue was a real problem.
I want to move them in the spring. My choices are plant them in various large containers or a really hot, dry spot with kind of iffy soil along the fence. If neither of those will work I'll probably give them away.
