Growing Morning Glories

Morning Glories can be planted in the garden from seed but you'll have much earlier blooms if you start them indoors 5 or 6 weeks ahead of planting.

Ad

The Morning Glory loves to face East as they bloom in the mornings and fade away come the hot afternoon sun. So don't plant morning glories facing the West.
Although they fade away each day new ones will be there to open up in the morning.

Morning glories readily reseed themselves and keeping them all in one place is almost impossible.

The little black seeds fall all over the place once the little 'pods' on the vines dry up and open, so plant morning glories in an area by themselves so they have free reign to do what Mother Nature intended them to do.
MULTIPLY!

Hi,
Your Morning Glories are simply beautiful. Their
blue is my favorite shade of blue, and I wish
I had a wall facing east so that I could make it
look like yours. It is a feast for the soul, and
you are a lucky lady.

Thank you for sharing with us.

Do the morning glories come back every year or do they have to be replanted?
Thanks,

They will come back every year for the rest of your life! Very invasive.

Morning glories are an annual plant, but produce plenty of seeds that start from the beginning each spring quite easily. without any help from the human gardener. Beth (06/11/2005)

I'm going to be planting a large pot of them in my house. I want them to grow around my living room and I was wondering if they'll be able to sustain growth in my living room? (06/15/2005)

I don't know Kyle if morning glories will grow indoors or not. I've never heard of anyone doing that before.

You will need to put them in an east window or have some kind of growing lamp on them in the mornings to open up the blooms.
And you'll have a lot of fallen blooms to pick up off the floor every day. :-)
They will be beautiful if it works for you.
Send in a picture so we can see the results.

Yes, you can grow morning glories from the seed indoors. I have been doing this for 3-4 years now. And have been very successful at it. I've given many to friends and they are so delighted to plant them in their garden. They grow and grow wild. They take over. Matter a fact my friends put their order in the spring, with me every year. And I am more than glad to please them I have grown them in 8-12 ounce cups. Either hot or cold cups. Plant the seeds at least as deep as your pinky, into the potting soil. Water them twice a day. Once in the morning between 7-9 am. then between 3-6 pm. I have been very proud of my morning glory babies. Especially when I go by my friend's house in the summer and see my babies growing wild. Well knowing in my heart that I started them form a seed. Oh! yeah they need plenty of sun they love lots of sun and plenty of water. Enough to soak the soil but not drown them. (06/16/2005)

My baby morning glories were eaten down to only a few inches above the soil. Will they grow new branches? (06/28/2005)

Growing Morning Glories

Susan I don't know if they will grow back again or not. I've never had anything eat my morning glories down to within a few inches of the soil.
I'd just leave them alone and see if they will start at ground level again.
I'd be interested in knowing if they do rebound and grow back.
Keep us posted. (06/28/2005)
