I have a lot of hollyhocks in my garden and my next door neighbor wants starts off mine and right now they are blooming and looking beautiful. When fall comes when they are done blooming is it safe to dig into them and give her starts? Is fall the best time to give her starts? Thank you so much.
Yes, dividing or transplanting should be done after flowering. You may also collect the seed disks from the flower and plant them indoors during the winter to have them ready for spring.
Yes,its the same as when it's time to trim trees back
