Let me start by saying I’m a gardening novice, which may explain my question.
We recently had a cluster of bell flowers planted in a perennial bed, and I’m completely underwhelmed by them. They have just flopped all over the place, and the dead flowers cling to the stems looking, well, dead.
Do these perennials need to be staked? Or should I chalk their apparent weaknesses up to them being new plants and wait until next year before replacing them?
