Hollyhocks generally have a tap root that does not transplant well. The fact that your plants were out of the ground for a length of time also does not work on your behalf.
You can grow Hollyhocks in containers, but they will need to have a large container to do well.
A great way to start the flowers and have a blooms quicker is to start the flowers from bare roots.
