    Hi

    I’ve young Hollyhocks ( mid size now-a foot high in ground ) , Delphiniums, Geums and Foxgloves ( the latter three are only around 4 inches high Snd still in plant pots ) .

    will any of the above need protection from the Yorkshire frosts?

    Thanks Loves

    Wait to see what others say. But I would say they are all hardy and just a protected place, maybe near the house should be enough.

      As Pete says should be hardy enough, in pots? then sheltered corner.

        Thank you. I was thinking because they’re young they may need fleece . The hollyhocks are not in pots , but still in the ground and a good foot high now .
        Ok, I’ll put the potted plants near a sheltered wall. Thanks people
