Hello. I planted my first garden this year and have some wonderful perennials going. I planted some glads that look like they will be about 4 ft tall. They shot up real well and just started to bloom this last week. The problem is they are really top heavy. What can I do to support the tops? Thank you!

ANY TOP HEAVY PLANTS CAN BE PREVENTED FROM FLOPPING OVER BY INSERTING A STAKE INTO THE GROUND BESIDE THE PLANT AND TYING IT TO THE STAKE. BAMBOO STAKES CAN BE USED AS WELL AS CEDAR STAKES FOR HEAVIER PLANTS. IF PLANTED IN ROWS, TRY RUNNING A LINE ON EITHER SIDE OF THE PLANT TO FENCE POSTS SUNK INTO THE GROUND AT EITHER END OF THE ROW.
