When to Plant Morning Glory Seeds
Seeds can be directly sown once soil temperatures are 65 degrees or above, or started indoors 4-6 weeks before the final frost date for your area.
Where to Plant Morning Glory Seeds
Morning Glory plants prefer full sun so be sure to pick an area that has direct sunlight for 6-8 hours.
How to Plant Morning Glory Seeds
Morning Glory seeds will benefit from scarification prior to planting. This is a simple process that involves nicking the seeds with a knife or rubbing them with sandpaper or a file. Learn more about the benefits of scarification here.
Before planting, we recommend soaking Morning Glory seeds for 24 hours to encourage germination. Learn more about here.
To scarify, you may nick the seeds with a knife, or rub the seeds with sandpaper or a file. Then soak the seeds overnight. Plant seeds 1/2 inch deep and provide 8-12" spacing between plants. Once vines reach 6 inches, provide trellis support unless planted in hanging planter in which case you can leave it to spill over.
How to Care for Morning Glory
Water weekly at first or when the soil looks dry. Once established, only water as needed. Remove any spent blooms as they appear and at the first sign of killing frost, cut back dead vines.
