: I have a friend who wants to transplant hollyhocks. Everything I read says it is difficult and discourages transplanting. However, she is determined to give it a try. The question is when should she transplant the hollyhocks.

Hi Shirley,
Hollyhocks are biennial and do best if transplanted when they are very young or in their first year of growth. Early spring or fall would be the best time to try. She could let them go to seed and just plant the new seeds where she wants them to grow.
