Answer: You could re-tie the plants to their supports. You could use a soft fabric such as nylon stocking or a strip of stretchy tee shirt fabric. Tie it in a figure eight pattern, loosely around the stem of the plant (avoiding the foliage) and then around the stake. Loosen it as needed to avoid cutting into the bark as the plant grows. Once the plant is self supporting, you can remove the ties. I hope this helps. If you are not sure how to do this, I would suggest you consult with your retailer for additional help. Enjoy your gardenias!
