Question: My hollyhocks are 7 feet tall and are done blooming. Do I cut them down to the ground or half way down or leave them? Will they bloom again this season or not till next year?Thank you for your help.
Answer: Cutting the stalks back immediately after blooming may produce a second bloom, so go ahead and cut it back about two-thirds. New little stalks should appear and produce smaller blooms on sideshoots.
