Q.Limbs On Plant Will Not Support Flowers.

Zone 75951 | michaelgreer694@yahoo.com added on May 31, 2020 | Answered

When the plant started blooming, the limbs started “drooping” almost to the ground. The limbs are too “flimsy” to support the blooms. What can I do to increase the strength of the limbs?

If you are talking about peonies, that is a common problem.

One thing you can do is make sure the soil fertility suits the plants. For example, a plant that prefers poor or average soil is likely to flop in rich soil. And a plant that needs rich soil will struggle in poor soil.

Also, be sure the amount of sun is appropriate. A plant that needs full sun but only gets light sun is likely to stretch for light, weakening the plant.
