Vines that are not typically self-supporting can lay in the dust, whilst heavy flowerers like peonies will produce drowsy flowers. Tall, top-heavy plants, in addition to those cultivated in windy areas, often need plant supports.  Training plants demands self-discipline and a little bit of soft bondage in the form of plant ties, in addition to your garden obelisk.
