Cleome Plants
Q.

planting cleomes which are “leggy” grown too long in a greenhouse

Zone Madison WI 53716 | carolyn tadder added on June 28, 2017 | Answered

because the flower stems are very long, can I plant them deeper in the soil? You can do this with tomatoes, I'm curious if I can do this with the cleomes I purchased?

This will not work with Cleomes. You can stake the plants to ensure they stay upright.
