: this is the first year i've had a problem with my hollyhocks - the leaves are turning yellow, only around the edges. i've been told it's not rust, but haven't been able to identify what it is! can anyone help me???
: thanks!!


It's not rust. When the leaf tips become brown or yellow its commonly a lack of water in the soil that is the problem. Otherwise, the plant may have a nutrient deficiency. Start by watering the plant thoroughly and fertilize gently every 2-3 weeks.
