Bachelor’s Button Problems: Why Are My Flowers Falling Over

By Jackie Carroll There is something enchanting about an abundance of blue flowers in the garden, and one of the most popular annuals for adding blue color is bachelor’s buttons. Like most tall annuals, bachelor’s buttons tend to fall over when loaded with flowers. Learn how to deal with bachelor’s buttons falling over in this article.

All you accomplish with a mid-season cut is a loss of flowers with little time left to produce new ones. Bachelor’s button stems loaded with flowers in full bloom tend to flop over just when the flowers are at their best. It’s a good idea to plan in advance for the likelihood that they will eventually fall. Anticipate the problem, and take care of it
