season, be sure to remove any dead plant matter remaining in the bed, because it harbors rust spores and perpetuates the problem. In spring, use fresh mulch around the base of the hollyhocks.

If you're not opposed to using chemicals, Chlorothalonil (Daconil 2787) and Bayleton are labeled for control of rust on hollyhocks. Be sure to follow label directions.
