Morning glory seedlings dying

Posted: 18/05/2014 at 13:44

Morning Glories are very sensitive to low temperatures - the leaves will go white and they will stop growing and be very unhappy.   They don't mind rain if it's warm, but cold and wet is worse.  They prefer temps to be 20C+

Mine won't be planted out until the beginning of June at the earliest - depending on the weather.

I'd take them indoors if I were you.

You're very kind, but as I said, 'It all depends on how much space you have' 

We don't have enough

I think it can look absolutely fantastic

Just checked the Met Office website - the rain's not hitting East Anglia until Wednesday - all the more reason to go to Bressingham Gardens on Tuesday

And yet people pay good money for Angelica gigas 

It all depends on how much space you have.

Hi Panda and Clari 

24.8C here 

OH has mowed front and back lawns.  Froggies have been trying to catch flies and missing.  Did I tell you I watched the big one get a damsel fly yesterday - it had crashlanded in the pond, hauled itself out on a plant and was just drying it's wings when .............. Gulp!!! There it was - gone 

I've been clambering about on the Shady Bank pulling out the Saponaria officinalis that creeps through from next door, before it spreads everywhere.  I've found two bits of Lonicera Belgica  that have layered themselves, so they've been potted up to grow on - they'll be handy for the back fence when we change things around a bit down there.  Also potted up are some Gernamium phaeum.   

Now I'm indoors for a 10 minute sit down, some more sunscreen and a cool drink. 


Mystery plant

Lucky you, they're going to be gorgeous

Any  good wild flower mix of seeds you get will surely have those in it - wonderful for pollinating insects.  Pull a few out maybe, but leave some - they're gorgeous.
