Iv 3 Delphiums & 2 Hollyhocks id like to plant into agrouping container 4 two displays! but i dont know how far apart they should be planted from each other so i can get the rite size pot?Id be grateful if some 1 could give any advice they may have :D

On plant Delphinium



Well, my Delphiniums in the ground are planted about 10 inches apart and the leaves are touching now. I hope that the Hollyhocks are dwarf ones - they grow up to 8' tall in my garden! Why do you want to plant them in pots, Jacque? I would have though that they'd be top-heavy!
