How can I help top heavy plants?

How can I help top heavy plants? Careful pruning can help a top-heavy plant. Cut off dead leaves and branches, making sure to cut safely for the type of plant. The time of year you should prune, pruning method and amount you can prune depends on the plant. Cutting away more than 10 percent of the plant at one time may harm the plant.

How do you keep top-heavy plants from tipping over? You can keep plant pots from falling over by providing them stable support, placing them against a wall, using a heavy pot with a wide base, placing stones on the pot, protecting your garden with windbreaks, or moving the pots indoors when the weather is bad.
