Hard to imagine anything killing hollyhocks, Hazel, except for me. I have to rip them out whenever they start to take over. They like well drained soil and regular watering in dry weather. Too much summer rain then, that's a pity. You never know, mine might all drown yet. In about a 40 minute thunderstorm this afternoon, we got 37ml of rain, almost 1 1/2 inches. Two inches forecast for tomorrow, another 20 ml maybe the next day, so we may get floods again if the falls are higher in the river's catchment areas. It means we'll have lots of mosquitoes, worse luck.
