My Geums are falling over with flowers. Is it OK to cut them back after flowering? How are they best supported? Liz

On plant Geum



I just let mine flop where they want. You can plant them by sturdier plants for support, or find some willow, hazel or Cornus and weave some supports for them. I sometimes find odd things like an old fire grate and use it to support flopsy flowers! Cut them back to the base after flowering.

Many thanks. I'll try all of your suggestions.
