i never staked mine, once the seeds starting maturing and the birds starting enjoying them i just let nature take its course. once the seeds depleted, i cut them down to the ground. Occasionally if we had a very mild winter, one or two would come back the next spring but at least here in the DFW area, mine didn't come back. I simply planted new seeds the next spring and started over. cant beat the price--a pack of seeds costs under $2 for sure.
