I am in zone 5 I need to know how late in the season it is ok to plant my delph and hollyhock? I have been working on a few areas but they are still not ready yet. I think they will be ready in about another 2 to 3 weeks. Will it be too late in the season then?

It doesn't matter where you go in life... It's who you have beside you when you get there.

You'll need to give them at least six weeks in the ground to establish a root system before frost hits. So, if you know when your average first frost is, just count back six weeks and that's the latest you should plant.
