Hollyhocks and propagation

Rhonda, you can take root cuttings from hollyhocks  https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=407

I'd also collect some seeds after they've flowered and sow them.

Steve - think the leylandii in question belong to the neighbour!!!   Might cause disharmony if the Amateur Gardener gets them taken down out of hand!

Alex   Do you mean there are tall shoots coming from the base of the plant?  If so then they need training sideways too so that they too produce side shoots.

Maybe the old canes are ready to take right out so that they're replaced by the new canes.

Hi Alex - have a look at this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1o-o_FHPoEU

It will explain how to stimulate the growth of side shoots which produce the blooms

Yes pinch out the top shoots and steam them and toss them in butter and black pepper - delicious - the addition of some crispy fried bacon bits is heavenly
