Cheers Keely 👍 This just appeared by itself last year, but isn't quite so vigorous this year, so far @Keely

Wow that's a beauty Jeff @jeatacake I love the colour!❤❤ Did you gyo or buy them? I'm waiting for a boring white one to flower but it's very very slow. I bought several weeks ago now 😯😯

This one grew by itself, but all hollyhocks I grew from seed, but now seedlings regularly pop up on their own. Look forward to seeing a white one. Quite rare @midnightgardener 👌

@jeatacake Grew by itself!! I wish that was in my garden. I wonder if, as mine's taking a long time to flower, it doesn't like where I've put it. I'll get out there and do a reshuffle! 😊😊
