Morning Glory Seeds

Soaking the morning glory seeds before planting. It takes less than a day for them to pop open and start sending out little white stems. I've read before that each seed needs to be scratched or nicked, but I never do that, and they all germinate quickly.

These will grow up the privacy fence around the pool. Love the multi-colored ones--don't they look like the decorations on the Pyrex cups?

I love all Morning Glory's, though Heavenly Blue's are my favorite. I have Morning Glory's blooming in my backyard that sprang up from seeds I planted two years ago.

I have those same pyrex cups! :-)

I love morning glories, what I do to germinate them is put batting in the dish,cover with water and set the seeds on the ater for a few days or a week, it is nice to see them grow outside of the ground and wonderful for kids to experience the root growth and top growth as well.

I just got some Morning Glory seeds yesterday and am very anxious to plant them!

We had those cups until a couple of years ago...we still have the plates in circulation. I love the blue on white and the little flowers. The print always reminds me of when I was a kid.

Seeds with a hard seed coat can either be scarified (scratched) or soaked for about 24 hours prior to planting. I spent four years in a lab doing germination testing on all sorts of small seeds and soaking was the preferred method.

I plant Heavenly Blue morning glories every year. In my ideal world, I'd have masses and masses of them. I content myself with planting them around a single deck support. Morning glories are my favorite flower.
