I planted Hollyhock seeds last year. The leaves grew huge and lush like elephant ears but they never bloomed. They got about 6 hours of sun and were watered faithfully. That was last year. Now this year some leaves have come back. What can I do to ensure they bloom this year?

Hollyhocks are actually biennials and will not flower until their 2nd year.
You should look for flowers this summer!
