Some of my bigger Peonies are staggering all over the place.

What do other gardeners with big plants to keep them upright ?

Regards,

Billo.

You can buy hoops for herbacious plants. A plastic hoop with two or tree plastic canes that are stuck in the ground so the hoop is at the particular hieght you want. The plants grow up through the middle of the hoop and are supported byit. You could fahion your own, the trick is to have them in place early enough.
Some people use twigs etc like you would with peas, put a few around the plant as it grows, the foliage soon hides whatever you use.
