Many.... these look great and healthy. But what are you going to do with twelve of them, will you consolidate a few into a bigger pot or put some of these together into a bed. Or plant them singularly. How will you manage the twelve ? Thanks so much for picking this up.....

Hi Carmel, I have a huge pergola to cover and I also want some to grow up some trellising in my new courtyard, until my 'chocolate vine' takes off, so I will use them all. I'll plant 4 on each side of the pergola in May and the remainder will be split between 2 large trellises in the courtyard area, again in May..... Mandy

Are they easy to grow Mandy?

Mandy...I have uploaded some vies/aspects of my garden. The shed end and the wall area opposite the bed (if you get the gist) are areas that I need to brighten up. I already have a couple of climbers (Clematis Louise Rose and Jasmine Officinale) - you'll see them there too. I want to be able to manage these climbers as they grow. Ideally keep them in pots so I can move them in and out of shade (the shed and adjoining wall on left area doesn't get much sun) until I decide to commit them somewhere possibly the bed. So...for instance I would like to maybe start the Clematis and Jasmine up either side of the window of the shed. And when/if the Morning Glory takes off then run that up the adjoining wall or the top corner with the vacant pot (gets late afternoon and evening sun...)

When you have time...I would be grateful if you could have a quick four eyes and hopefully tell me this is possible.

but more importantly...about what you just said in terms of numbers of seeds sown...would I be right in saying that I should ideally do 4 with a view to planting those 4 in a pot close together for stability or would I just need one ?

Speak soon !!!

Very easy Annella, I'm a novice seed grower and they are doing extremely well, despite me (lol)

Hi Carmel, it would depend on the size of the pot. Morning glory can grow to 10 foot high. I am putting 2 in one large pot that already has a small chocolate vine in it and another 2 in a large pot that has a small honeysuckle and then I am going to under plant with perlagoniums. Morning glory bloom first thing in the morning and do prefer full sun, they will need trellis or a wigwam for support.

Mandy...thank you so much for getting back - I have sown two seeds tonight (your method) and will have another two soaking overnight with a viw to nicking and or scraping. I'll start with four. as this is a completely new experience for me I have no idea how it will go - I have time (so I can move them in and out of the sun easily) before I get to promoting them to a pot that will be it's resting place so to speak. I'll see how I go...your look so promising I have to give this a go - would be very happy if this worked for me ...

I don't see why this won't work for you, let me know which method is best (soaking & nicking v not) :o)
