Alcea 'Halo White' is a handsome creamy-white hollyhock, with single flowers – so much nicer than any of the double forms which you see so many of these days.

When you think of a British cottage garden, you think of hollyhocks, tall, towering stems lining a path or standing either side of a gate. They are wonderful plants that flower all summer long, no countrystyle garden is complete without them. Hollyhocks do have a tendency to rust – Copper Mixture will keep this at bay.

Sowing, Seeds, Planting Sow under cover in April-May, or direct May-July. Place each seedling into its own pot of peat-free compost, the ideal spot for growing on has maximum all-round light. Hollyhocks will be ready for planting out in the garden by June, but won't flower well until the following year. Plant container-grown plants in spring or autumn, sprinkle mycorrhizal fungi (Rootgrow) into the base of the planting hole and water well after planting.
Care Tips Hollyhocks do have a tendency to rust; Copper Mixture will keep this at bay. Provide support to protect from wind and rain.

Vase Life Sear their stems for 20 secs before giving them a deep cool drink. Use their full height with either several colours jumbled together or a single colour in a stately vase.
