Planting Morning Glories

I have 2 places where I want to plant morning glories. One is at the foot of my mail box post. The other is in the ditch in front of my house (water does not flow through it due to past neighborhood kids tossing basketballs, etc. in there and now it's plugged up which suits me great).

My question is, how do I keep them from spreading? (Been there done that. OMG!) At the mailbox would be easy because I can plant them in a pot and only plant one or two on either side. But I can't figure out how to plant them in the ditch without them spreading all over the lawn.

You actually can't stop them from reseeding but it is simple to pull up the ones you don't want as soon as they sprout.
Also you can cut down on the seeds by pulling up the plant when they start to produce a lot of pods. They are usually looking kinda ragged by that time anyway.

If you plant the kind that grow from seeds, just pull up the seedlings that start where you don't want them. If you plant the seedless kind, forget about keeping them from spreading. Can't be done. Wish I hadn't planted that kind several years ago.

The photo shows the front half of our 12' x 60' mobile home and the hedge next to it. There are even more this year, in spite of having a whole truckload cut down and taken away each October.
