Stake Plants to Help Them Grow Better

Prevent Plant Flop Over! Here are some great tips from the Garden Club at Home Depot to help you keep your larger plants stay pright all season long.

Plants To Stake
Many flowering perennials that grow taller than 2 feet will grow better when staked. Their tall stems are vulnerable to heavy rains and high winds, and once the stems are bent or broken, it’s difficult to get them upright again. Tall flowering perennials to consider staking are heliopsis, delphiniums, sweet peas, lilies, peonies, and dahlias. Certain vegetables absolutely must be staked in order to produce well. Pole beans, peas, tomatoes and peppers produce the biggest harvests when they are staked or caged.

Single Plant Stakes
Single plants like zinnias or tomatoes can be staked plant-by-plant. Appropriate plant stake choices include bamboo, slender rebar or lightweight plastic stakes. Tomato cages also work well for all vegetables – not just tomatoes. To stake using single plant stakes, push a stake into the ground beside the plant, making sure the stake is not taller than the plant itself. Tie the plant to the stake about two-thirds of the way up the stem.
