Helpful Tip from the Garden Geeks: Think twice before you transplant hollyhock volunteers that sprout in your yard. These tall beauties have long, straight taproots that can't be cut. If you do decide to move them, prepare their new home by digging a deep hole and watering it well. Dig carefully around the rootball and lift it out of the ground, along with as much of the original soil as possible. Keep your transplants watered well until they resume growing. With any luck, they wont even notice they have been moved.
