Helpful Tip from the Garden Geeks: Give floppy flowers a strong backbone. Use chicken-wire to support leggy flowers, like peonies and chrysanthemums. Cut a piece of chicken-wire about the size of the flower bed, and stake it a foot above the ground. The plants will grow up through the wire, and their thick foliage will hide this homemade support from view.
