I planted hollyhocks from seed. I had large leaves but no flowers. Will they flower next spring? Should I cut the large leaves back?

Hollyhocks are generally considered to be biennials, or plants which bloom in their second year. It sounds like yours are right on schedule. Allow the foliage to stay in place; next spring when the weather settles remove any badly tattered leaves. Your plants should bloom next summer.
