That's interesting. Of the few TBs I grow Victoria Falls doesn't fall
over for me. And that is in some part day shade of a big tall blue
spruce. Anyway, I'll bet that some of my local conditions must
influence this trait of Victoria Falls. Maybe you could try some
lower nitrogen, high potash etc fertilizer? This often gives chunkier
stem growth for me. Bone meal seems beneficial. (Don't put any of
that on your JIs, though...too much calcium.)
