Droopy cosmos

julieherb(8, UK)October 20, 2012

I have cut some of the Cosmos "Sonata" that I grew in my garden this year and have them in a vase, but one by one the stems are drooping over as if the flower heads are too heavy for the stems. Is there a special way to condition these flowers so they don't droop? Thanks for your help.

I've not had the stems droop, but the flowers never last more that a few hours in a vase for me. I never considered cosmos to be a good cut flower.
