Morning Glory ‘Knowlians Black’ - Seed

Ipomoea - purpurea - ‘Knowlians Black’
Description:
Morning Glory (Ipomoea) is still a fairly unknown plant, but we are about to change all this with the introduction of this beautiful unique variety. The petals are strikingly dark coloured with a pink heart. The great advantage of climbing plants is that they produce a spectacular effect without requiring much space on the ground. All they need is a climbing support so that they can reach up to the light. They transform dull walls and fences into beautiful natural features.

Planting+
Sow under glass from the end of February until April.
Sow in the garden from May.
There are two ways to sow Ipomoea:
  1. Early - from the end of February already, indoors. Use small pots, one seed per pot. Stand the pots in a propagator or just on a warm windowsill. Keep them moist and the light and heat will do the rest. Keep them back if they shoot too quickly for weather conditions by moving to a cooler but still light spot.
  2. Sow directly in the garden, in full sun, from May through to June. Loosen the soil with a fork to about 30 cm deep. Draw a straight furrow approx. 1 cm deep and sprinkle the seed between thumb and forefinger along the row, as thinly as possible. Cover the seeds with half a centimetre of soil, press carefully down and sprinkle with water. Label the row.
The seeds should germinate in 14-21days.
Once the seedlings are at least 10 cm tall and it no longer freezes outdoors, they can be planted where you want them.
Loosen the soil thoroughly with a fork and after planting your morning glory plants water them imediately. They will thrive in loose, fertile soil. Improve poor soil with the addition of some well-rotted manure. These climbers like to be in either full sun or part shade.
Care+
Water your morning glory (Ipomoea) regularly - do not allow the root ball to dry out. If potted, stand the pot on a saucer to collect any drain-off on warm days. Snip of overblown flowers regularly to encourage your Ipomoea to reflower. We advise regular feeding for extra profuse flowering. Morning glory is an annual.
