Hollyhock Blooms

Anonymous added on June 19, 2015 | Answered

I planted a hollyhock last spring, purchased from a local nursery. It is planted in a large wine barrel. The plant is healthy and looks happy, but again this year there are no blooms. Do these plants have to grow a couple of seasons before they bloom? It is planted in full sun and watered daily as we have high temps in the summer.

The soil may be lacking phosphorus, which is necessary for blooming. Use a phosphorus-rich fertilizer or add bone meal to the soil around your plants and see of this helps.
