What Happened to My Hollyhock

shelly added on April 12, 2011 | Answered

I have a small garden close to the house with onions-radishes-spinach and lettuce. In the middle a few hollyhocks were about 9 inches high from last year and I went out yesterday and they had been eaten to the quick. What animal or pest would of done that?
They took the whole plant to the woody root. Thank you - Shelly

Deer will do that. Even if you have a fence, a deer can clear a 6' fence without needing any runup. This article might help:
