Re: Cutting back Hollyhocks

Could I ask a couple of hollyhock questions.  Why not cut back new growth?
Also, mine became riddled with holes (it was the first year I had grown them
and dug most out after seeing how ugly the foilage was).  Someone told me that
if you cut off the new growth in the spring, the second growth will not be
bothered by bugs.  Is there any truth to this?  If not, can they be grown with
nice foilage?
