Morning glories are easy to start from seed. Soak seeds for 24 hours or nick the hulls prior to planting to speed germination, then sow them 1/2" deep directly outdoors. In climates with long, cool springs, start seeds in peat pots indoors several weeks before your last frost date and move them into the garden when overnight temperatures stay above 45º F. Vines will reach 10 feet or more within two months.
Morning glories are native to the tropics. Flowers last for one day and are normally open only from dawn to mid morning, but may last all day under cloudy skies. Hummingbirds are attracted to the blooms.
seeds are easy to harvest off of the vines as well--i still have tons of them from vines grown last years--i planted 4 pkgs of seed last year and saved around 200 or more seeds. Anyone need some? Can't tell you colors or anything and some might be 4 o'clocks.

I planted Morning Glorries by seed and they have sprouted. The plants are in a pot and are now about 5 inches long. They seem to be taking forever to grow and I have a nylon string for them to wrap around on. They are exposed to full sun. Why so long?
I have several types of morning glory and they all have the same problem. The plants are completly denuded of leaves. All that is left is the main stem and branches. Help
