Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
    Growing Instructions:

    Morning Glory seeds can be sown directly into the garden when the soil is warm and all danger of frost is passed. Soil temperature (not air temperature) should be warmer than 21°C (70°F) for seeds to germinate. Planting at a lower temperature will delay germination. As the seedcoats are hard, nick them with a sharp knife, or nail clippers, being careful not to damage the embryo inside and soak them overnight (but not longer) in room temperature water before planting to hasten germination. Choose a location that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight daily. Space seeds and plant to the depth indicated below. Press seeds into the soil to ensure good contact and cover with 1.3 cm (1/2") of soil. After planting, water the seeds with a gentle mist or shower. A hard spray can wash soil away, dislodge seeds and clump them together. It is critical to keep the soil consistently moist, but not soggy during germination. Do not let the soil dry out, as young plants have underdeveloped roots and can quickly dehydrate, particularly in windy conditions. When your seedlings reach a height of a few centimetres (inches) and have developed 2 or 3 pairs of leaves, it is important to thin them out, according to the plant spacing indicated below to provide good air circulation and room to grow.

    For earlier blooms, seeds can be started indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost in your area. Follow the seed depth and spacing guidelines indicated below. Once all danger of frost has passed, seedlings should be hardened off before planting in their growing location. Seedlings should be transplanted according to the plant spacing directions below. Regularly monitor your plants and ensure that the soil remains moist, while they establish themselves in their new environment.

  • Planting Depth: 1.3 cm (1/2")

  • Instructions for Nutrient Care: Feed plants SUPERthrive once per week. Mix 1.2 ml (1/4 tsp) per 4L (1 gallon) of water in a watering can and apply solution to the base of the plants.
Suggestions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
Growing Suggestions:
  • Morning Glories need a lot of sun to bloom their best.
  • Well-draining soil is necessary as the plant does poorly in soggy soil which will cause stress to the plant and may lead to root rot. Water only when the soil is dry.
  • Water at the base of the plant, rather than overhead.
  • Due to their height, a trellis is highly recommended. The planting area should be prepared and a trellis erected before planting seeds.
  • Fertilized and/or rich soil produces lush foliage but no blooms. They thrive on neglect.
