Someone gave me a few seeds from her Hollyhocks and told me I could plant them and grow my own. My question is when can I plant them and how. They are annuals she gave me, do I plant them in the fall or wait to spring.

The traditional garden hollyhock is a biennial which means it is planted in summer (or late spring when the soil is warm) and grows for a season, then returns the following summer to bloom, then sets and drops seed and begins the cycle for the next generation of plants. Some annual hollyhock cousins, however, will grow enough to bloom from seed in one season. I think your best approach would be to plant them next spring.
