Planting & Care
Soil & Water: Plant in moderately fertile soil that drains well. Erect well-anchored supports at least 8 feet tall in a wind sheltered area; strong netting or a sturdy trellis serve well to hold these vigorous climbers. Morning glories will bloom hard in mid-summer once days begin to shorten.
Planting & Growing: To Start Indoors:In late spring, once weather is warm and settled and nights stay above 50°F, plant seeds in a sunny spot in ordinary garden soil 2 - 3" apart and 1/2" deep. Firm soil over seeds and keep evenly moist but not soggy while awaiting germination. To Start Early Indoors: Sow indoors 4 - 5 weeks before last expected frost in individual pots of seed starting mix. Cover 1/2" deep and keep warm and moist. Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outdoors. Transplant very carefully once night stay above 50°F and before seedlings get too crowded. Thin or Transplant: Space seedlings 6 - 8" apart; carefully avoid disturbing roots if transplanting.
