‘Annabelle’ is such a buxom beauty, she sometimes needs to wear a corset! Even when she’s cut down almost to the ground each late winter/early spring, which you did, big plants also need to be surrounded by some kind of support device — like bamboo canes inserted at angle to form a series of “X’s” all around, or stakes and twine…some kind of encircling support.
Big difference with that added step.
