Q. My tiger lilies grow too tall and fall over when they flower. What can I do about it?
Tiger lilies grown in rich, well-drained soil should grow into strong plants. Plenty of sun is important to give them that strength, so perhaps you need to move them to a sunnier location (this can be done in spring or fall, or even in summer when they are flowering as long as you water them well after transplanting). You may need to stake your plants, but be careful not to pierce the bulbs when you drive the stake into the ground.
