Morning glory trouble

Posted: 08/06/2015 at 19:23

minimum night time temperatures are meant to be 10 degrees for morning glory. I have never been successful growing them. I think they would do well in greenhouse conservatory.

Good thanks. Really surprised they survived as live in the northeast. I do live near the coast however.

I left some tubers in the ground last year and they have all sprouted surprisingly. Will they flower better than if they had been doug up as they have been left in situ? or is it a big disadvantage to leave them in the ground

I may well have sown something else I honestly don't know it seems really odd that they have only sprouted exactly where I put the seeds. perhaps I have sown something else. Thanks for the replys I'll leave them for now and see what they look like when they flower

I seeded a bed with candytuft in September and I thought what was growing was candytuft however I am beginning to think they may be weeds. The foliage has serrated leaves and in all the photos on the internet they have elongated plain leaves. I hope this is not the case. Any help would be appreciated

They tend not grow much in the first year but will start to put on growth in the second year.

As for privacy I planted a lot of clematis around the fence but no trees the have covered the fence well and look better but to be honest it hasnt really increased the privacy.

No had already dug up the weeds I just turfed it after that. I regularly had the sprinkler on until the turf had established which is a pain when your on a water meter like me in a new build.

I rotavated mine with a hired rotavator as the soil was compacted due to the building of the house. My soil was full of bricks and paving slabs and allsorts too. I turfed it. It was the best option if not the cheapest and I have a good lawn now. The front was seeded by the house builder and is full of weeds and patchy. Im making it better but its not as good as the turf.
