Morning Glory Germination

A new study has found that an almost 30% increase in the application of a makeover spray has led to a 6. 5% increase in the rate at which seeds grow and produce plants. Because of this, ornamental grasses are now stronger and more durable.It’s a shame that so many gardeners confuse this annual morning glory with the invasive weed, Convovulus arvensis, because this variety will not take over the garden. Instead, it will produce a lush abundance of big, intensely blue flowers from midsummer on. Continue reading below for tips on how to grow morning glory from seed.

Morning

Morning glory (Ipomoea purpurea) produces deep-purple flowers that open during the early part of the day. When grown on trellises or fences, the vine can reach 6- to 10-feet tall and provide a living privacy screen. Morning glory is an annual plant that can readily reseed itself; so it often returns each year on its own. Starting morning glory seeds indoors about six weeks before you plan to transplant the resulting seedlings into the garden, however, ensures you'll have enough plants in the desired locations.Select a permanent growing container or garden spot. Morning glories react poorly to transplanting due to their delicate root systems, so it's best to pick one location and stick to it. If planting in an outdoor container, choose one at least 2 ft (0.6m) wide and 3 ft (0.45m) high for best results. If starting the plant indoors, use a 3 inch (7.6cm) peat pot that can be buried in your garden when you want to move the plant outdoors.

Move them outdoors (if necessary). If you started your plants indoors, move them outdoors once the seedlings are well-established and the last frost is past. Morning glories are hardier than most plants, but it's still a good idea to start by moving the container to partial shade. Move the plant to a slightly sunnier location every few days, or back to darker shade if you see wilting or sun scorch.Clear away dead vines in winter. Morning glories can survive a mild frost, but in most climates they will die in early winter. Morning glories are aggressive re-seeders, which is good and bad news from the gardener. You won't need to buy any more seeds for next season, but you might discover that your whole garden starts growing vines. Clear away the dead vines promptly to prevent this. New seeds will usually grow from the same spot, but you may gather seeds to plant by hand just in case. (Source:www.wikihow.com)
