What’s The Story Morning Glory

by greenrabbitdesigns

Now this isn’t a post about the 1995 Oasis album, no this post is about my efforts to grow a Morning Glory in my garden.

For three years I have tried without success, they just would not grow for me and if they did they didn’t survive.

However, I’m delighted to announce that this morning my Morning Glory which I grew from seed has bloomed!!

I took very good care of it, kept it in the greenhouse until the last moment before taking it out and I have been rewarded with my plant producing gorgeous purple flowers.

Some of you are probably saying to yourselves, what she on about I grow them all the time but for me it didn’t work, not until today!

Beautiful weather here today, hope it’s here for the weekend (and beyond) for us all.

Happy weekend everyone! 🙂

A real beauty Vivienne…I bought one at the garden centre earlier this year and it seems happy growing amongst the ivy in my raised bed. I think it has thrived on lots of rain!!! Well done you growing it from seed! The weather does really look on the up, have a wonderful weekend,

Worth waiting for Vivienne! Pity the blooms don’t last long though. The colour is amazing.

I grew some blue Morning Glory from seed many years ago over an arbour in the garden. They were so pretty but I didn’t realise that they were called Morning Glory because they only last a morning!!!

The flowers should be prolific though so enjoy them whilst you can!

Have a lovely weekend Vivienne. x

I don’t know how it is where you live but moring glories are a real pain in Philadelphia. They reseed themselves like crazy, then take over and you can never get rid of them. I hope it’s different for you because they are sweet flowers.

Congratulations Vivienne, it really does look to have been worth the effort, fab colour. Happy days, it seems to be sunny! x

Just visiting to congratulate you via Maderlief.
I adore Morning Glories too. In the States they seem to have a problem with them, but that could never happen here. I find that I am most successful with them if I put them out in good weather and as a really established plant.
Scrolled down your blog where you have some lovely photos.

Sorry should have been Madelief.
