How to Grow Ipomoea from Seed

Morning Glory, or Ipomoea, has to be one of the loveliest of all climbers, it is simply divine scrambling over walls and fences, through trellises and growing through shrubs and trees. The butterfly and bee attracting flowers open with the morning sunshine, last for just one day and then closes in the afternoon. Removing flower heads as each bloom fades will encourage further flowering and extend the display.

Sow Morning Glory seeds into individual 3 inch pots or growing cells from February to April. Germination typically takes up to 21 days.

Ipomoea plants are extremely resentful of root disturbance, even as seedlings.

When seedlings are 3-4 inches tall pinch out the growing point to encourage bushy growth.

Gradually acclimatise the young plants to outdoor conditions for a couple of weeks before planting out in a sunny position after the danger of frost has passed.

Ipomoea prefers full sun and will not flourish in shade.
