Marsha’s home, which is surrounded by flowers, is in
Gilbert, Arizona, where she lives with her husband, Dane. They raised six wonderful children, who then gave them twenty-three amazing grandkids!
“My love of hollyhocks began in 1997 when I was given a little envelope of seeds from my brother-in-law, Sheldon. The first time my seeds bloomed and surrounded my home, I was hooked! Thousands of hollyhocks have grown from that little envelope, and I have shared my seeds with hundreds of people. Years ago, I discovered an old cross-stitch of Holly Hobby I did as a teenager. I always loved that little girl. When I realized the name, Holly Hobby, and my favorite flowers were the same, the stories of Holly’s Hollyhocks began.”
