Hollyhocks are pretty strong on their own, but as the flower stalks grow taller you might want to give them extra support with Y stakes. You can buy these from Gardener's Supply, www.gardeners.com. Use their search box to look at all their options for plant supports. By the way, if you are a member of our new BHG Garden Club you can get a discount on all Gardener's Supply products in the BHG store. You can find our club information on the Gardening page of BHG.com.
