Sowing Directly in the Garden:

  • Morning glory seed has a hard seed coat. To aid germination, nick or cut the seed coat with a nail file and soak the seed overnight.
  • Direct sow seeds in average soil in full sun two weeks after danger of frost has passed. Morning glory is a vigorous vine; choose a location next to a support for the vines to climb.
  • Morning glory is not generally recommended for containers.
  • Prepare the soil by removing weeds and working organic matter into the top 6-8 inches of soil; then level and smooth. Morning glory tends to prefer poor soils rather than highly enriched soil.
  • Sow seeds thinly and cover with 1/2 inch of soil.
  • Firm soil lightly and keep evenly moist.
  • Seedlings will emerge in 7-21 days.
  • Keep soil evenly moist but not wet.
  • Thin plants to stand 10 inches apart when plants are 1 to 2 inches high.
  • Do not fertilize unless the plants are showing a nutrient deficiently. Over fertilizing may produce lush green vines with few flowers.
  • Monitor for pests and diseases. Check with your local Cooperative Extension Service for pest controls recommended for your area.
  • Remove plants after they are killed by heavy frost in fall to avoid disease issues the following year.
  • Morning Glory vines need little care and are easy to grow.
  • Plants can self-sow so allow some to set seeds at the end of the season if you would like it to come back next year. If you would like to prevent self-sowing, remove seed pods before the seeds are released.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colors The flowers were beautiful and the vine was so full of blooms

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Huge dissapointment I bought the seeds in April. I planted a dozen seeds in late April in a large pot in new miracle grow potting soiled. Never saw even a sprout until August when one plant broke ground an in early September there have been 4 blossoms. Not a very good performance. Probably won't ever do that again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT scarlet (not red at all) There flowers are smaller than any other morning glories I have seen, and they are NOT RED. They are a dark pink, a purplish pink. That is not at all what I had wanted or expected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grew excellent, just wrong color The plants grew very well, however they were not the red color. When they bloomed they were all white. Still very pretty, just not what I was anticipating.
