I would like to know if it is possible to grow a Hollyhocks from a stem cutting?
The other day I became a little over excited and bought a few cheep sell off plants at a local garden centre. In all the mad rush and polite fighting between other customers I went and bought a dilapatid hollyhocks. Anyway started to plant it today and it seems one of the stalks has simply been broken off by something or someone before purchase and just popped back into soil, grrrrr. I have it in water at the moment and the rooting homorne on standby should the water not do the trick in producing a root.
Bit more information about the stem I have in water as there are two flowers blooming on it at current but did manage to say one side of the plant which does have a root, so at least my £1.00 plant was not a complete waste.
Thanks in advance,
