: 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???
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.
