wondering how you managed to keep yours growing erect.
mine flopped all over the place, even when i staked it.
i like the plant, but if i'm going to try it again next
year, i'd like to know the secret for keeping it upright.

I don't really have a secret as you can see in the picture part of them did fall over. Unless the secret might be its so crowded the other plants held them up. This was a volunteer plant I didn't plant it there. I think its from where I dumped seed trays. I get surprises like that all the time.
