are there certain species that always need support, or does it vary?
Our gladioli are going strong and I'm very excited (new gardener... easily excited!) but they're so tall they're starting to flop, and I don't want the flowering stems to snap. They're going to be tricky to tie up though as they're flat blades, rather than round stems.
Single cane, figure of 8 around stem and the cane, tie at cane end. Job done.
