How To Grow Hollyhock From Seed: Hollyhock seeds can be started indoors or outdoors. When starting them indoors, plant the seeds in deep pots or deep trays, as hollyhock develops a tap root that does not like too much disturbance. Sow a couple of seeds per pot. When the seedlings establish, thin them to leave the strongest one in each pot. Transplant them to their final spot in the garden when frost risk has passed.

Alternatively, the seeds can be planted directly into the area the plants are to grow when frost risk has passed.

Hollyhock may produce flowers in its first year if it is started early enough. More often than not, it does not flower until its second year of growth. Depending on the plant's location, it may need to be staked to keep it standing up straight.
