Heavenly Blue Morning Glory Flowers
Morning glory flowers are relatively easy to grow. The hardest part for people is usually starting them from seed, but as long as you soak the seeds for 24-48 hours before you sow them they should sprout. The other thing is that you will need to keep them moist; this will help soften the thick outer shell. Another option is to scratch and nick each seed, but I find soaking the seeds works best. Once your seeds have started to germinate they will grow quite fast, and it’s a good idea to get the transplanted quickly if you start them indoors.
Heavenly blue morning glories look great at any angle. The vines will produce a lot of flowers. Some morning glory varieties will spread like weeds. If you live in climate though the seeds don’t survive the winter. So you will have to plant them each year, but at least it is easy to control where you want them. They are easy to care for and don’t need to be watered constantly. Some have said if you give the plants too much water they may delay in producing flowers, or you may not get as many. As for me, I just made sure I gave them one good watering at least once a week and mine produced a lot of flowers.
