my morning glories are already over a foot tall...I sowed them a tad too early and am also impatient to get them planted..but in the past when I have done this prior to the end of may..they just have not done well.

I've sown my morning glories already ( started a few weeks back from seed). I have them outside under pop bottles with the bottom cut off. They soil is warm where they are though because they get full sun.

My morning glories are coming up in their bed from last years seeds.

They tend to withstand a light frost now, but I have planted greenhouse ones too early in past years, and they got zapped with frost when it came.

It is a problem when they get too tall in the greenhouse. I have wrapped them around the stake, and alos clipped them, but they tend to not do so well.

I sowed several types of morning glory in April: Heavenly Blue, Flying saucer, Chocolate, and Aomurasakizyouhatensibori. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/150688/

They were all seeded more or less the same time, so my little experiment this year is to compare performance in containers as opposed to the ground.

I'd say it will be a couple of weeks before they can go into the ground though.

I agree with the others Sheikea

Dora I think you spelled Aomurasakizyouhatensibori wrong;) LOL...just kidding. What a long name. Please keep us posted on your experiment conclusions.

I'm growing the yellow Japanese MGs this year, and what terrible germination i got!! Three seedlings out of I think 15. The last 3 I really nicked.:)

ps. I had to c/p Aomurasakizyouhatensibori :)
