Hollyhock 'Pink Powderpuff'

This romantic cottage garden starlet produces large powder puff blooms in coral pink tones, with a delicate blush tint. A double flowered strain, it makes a tall and stately tower of blooms at the back of a border planting.

Position

Full Sun.

Sow

Sow into trays of Yates® Black Magic® Seed Raising Mix. Firm down, water gently and keep moist through germination period. Transplant when large enough to handle.

Care

Choose a sunny, sheltered position with well-drained soil. Add Yates® Thrive® Natural Blood & Bone before planting and fertilise regularly with Yates® Thrive® Roses & Flowers Liquid Plant Food. Protect from snails and slugs.

Hints

Water regularly at base of plant to avoid fungal diseases. Protect against rust, particularly in humid summer regions. In exposed positions, if staking is likely to be required, this is best done when plants are young to avoid damaging root system.
