Gloire du matin | Morning Glory

MORNING GLORY
Tricolor Ipomoea

The morning glory is an exuberant climbing plant very decorative with its abundant foliage and its splendid and generous flowering.It bears many deciduous, soft green heart-shaped leaves.Its flowering gives pretty flowers in trumpet, in clusters or solitary, of color blue. They have the particularity of opening in the morning to fade in the evening, but they are renewed every day.

PERIOD

Ipomée is a plant that does not support frosts. You have to wait until May to sow it directly outdoors.  At night the temperaturess must not be less than 10 degrees. Indoors or in greenhouses, sowing can begin as early as March. You can continue sowing and planting until July. You can also sow directly in the ground from mid-May, but the flowering will take place much later, which is a shame for an annual plant.

LOCATION

Place the morning glory in a sunny spot. Avoid soils that are too dry.

The growth of this plant is extremely fast: it can even reach 3 to 6 meters in a few weeks. It has the advantage of being talkative and therefore of attaching itself to the trellis, fence, tree or arbor that it goes to.literally embrace.

Its flowering is generous and its flowers form pretty trumpets.They have a fairly short lifespan but are constantly renewed.

SOW

Soak the seeds in lukewarm water for 1 hour before sowing to speed up emergence. Sowing is done in pockets, by depositing 3-4 seeds in a small hole 3 or 4 cm deep in the ground.

Pot

The pot culture of morning glory is quite possible and even interesting to adorn a terrace or a balcony.

  • For this, choose a pot of sufficient diameter (approximately 30 cm)

  • Make sure the pot is well drilled at the bottom and ideally put a bed of clay pebbles at the bottom

  • Then fill  the pot of potting soil for flowering plants

  • Water as soon as the soil is dry on the surface without flooding the plant

MAINTAIN

Morning glory has the advantage of being very easy and therefore requires very little maintenance.

No pruning is necessary because morning glory only lasts one year. However, if it becomes invasive, you can easily cut a few stems as you go. as necessary.

Morning glory should be watered regularly, especially in hot weather, but not too much.  The addition of a fertilizer for flowering plants should improve flowering, especially for potted morning glory. A mulch at the foot helps keep the humidity after watering and therefore limits the number of waterings.

Morning Glory is grown as an annual and therefore will not re-sprout from year to year.

LITTLE LEXICON OF THE GARDENER

A sowing (to sow) | A seedling (to plant)

When you sow seeds you get seedlings. THE sowing is done in small pots indoors (or in a greenhouse outdoors). Once the plant has grown enough, several weeks later, we are talking about a plant that can be planted in the ground.to complete its growth.
 

When and how to sow?

Most of the seeding takes place between February and April, when nature wakes up. Sowing is usually done at this time. Sow your seeds in small containers placed indoors (or in a greenhouse outdoors), in the light, with soil always slightly moist. You will then see your plants appear.

When outside temperatures are above 10 degrees at night, you can place your plants directly in the ground.

 

NOTE: Weather permitting, you can also sow directly in the ground (without sowing indoors), however this will delay flowering, since you will not be able to do this step before May-June, depending on the regionand the vagaries of the weather.

Sow in pocket: Place several seeds in a hole.

Sow on the fly: Project the seeds as evenly as possible over the entire surface to be sown.
