|My daiseys and Rudebecka's are falling over and we have to tie them up. They are quite tall. I don't see other
yards with this problem.
Their flowers appear to be standing on their own. Mine are healthy, so it isn't a disease problem.
|Spindly stems can be the result of rapid growth, either weather related or due to fertilizing to promote fast growth. There's not much you can do other than to stake or tie the floppy stems upright. They may become more rigid as they mature. To avoid the problem next year, hold off on fertilizers so your plants remain sturdy rather than growing in leaps and bounds. Enjoy your garden!|
