How to plant and take care of lavender and hollyhock in the tropical country?
All we have are rainy seasons and very dry and hot summers.

Lavender don't like too much water (although admittedly they do cope better with warm wet than they do with cold wet), so you'll want to plant it somewhere with very good drainage. If your soil isn't good enough as it is, it may be worth digging a lot of sand or grit into the bottom of the planting hole.

lavender is okay with the hot and dry summer, and hollyhocks love rain if there is proper drainage. I would plant the lavender in ten gallon pots. That way the excess rain water would drain out of the pots. And for the hollyhocks, I would plant them in spots where there is some shade from trees, but not a lot of shade.
