Plant of the month.

Fig leaf Holly Hocks are my choice, in August, for plant of the month in our garden@19.

I love the delicate colours of this one. The seed was sent to me probably two years ago by Gill Heavens after admiring pictures of them on her blog. This is their first flowering.

Do you have an August favourite?

  1. I love Hollyhocks and this region has them on all the postcards, This year mine have been poor, stunted, shadows of their former selves. The lack of rain has stunted and destroyed them. I have a few that are near areas that I water. Amelia

      1. Exactly. I “rehoused” 17 self seeded Hollyhock plants in December thinking I would have a marvellous show but not all have even survived. Your Honesty has taken and I am looking forward to it spreading.
