I have 10 hollyhock (peaches & dreams) plants. I have kept them in the greenhouse since they were small plugs. They are now 12 - 15 inches tall and becoming floppy. Would it be okay (after hardening them up for a few days) to plant these outside at this time of year (November)?



Hi, welcome to GoY, it would have been better to have kept them outside when you received them, but that isn't much use to you now, they will have gone soft now, I think the best thing to do now is put them in a cold frame for the winter, { when we get past the coming cold spell }, they will die back in winter, and sprout up again in spring, plant them out then, Derek.
