Repairing a Broken Stem

Heal broken stems with a drinking straw. Split the straw lengthwise and cut to the desired length. Carefully put it around the broken stem and tape it shut. Make sure to water the plant well. Then hope for the best. This quite often will give the stem the support it needs to heal.

What a clever idea. Sometimes my peonies get knocked over by a squirrel or a heavy rainstorm. I'm going to try this outside this year.
