Thanks Jackie. I also have a few that still are in tiny cups waiting to be transplanted. They would do better in bigger pots but I'm enjoying all my other blooming plants too. Be waiting to see your mg blooms too.

I am working on a morning glory garden. It is a large circular fenced in area with a broken double row of fence. I am soo upset to hear that the deer could be a problem. I guess I'm going to have to add some deer fence to the outer ring. How much area can I expect one morning glory to take up? I know this is probably an unanswerable question but I have to ask, it will make a difference in how many I plant. I start work on the inner fence today. Here is a photo of me after the first ring of fence posts went up. The narrower distances between the posts are to be open areas.

Domehomedee, that's going to be a very nice garden. I grew some on a fence several years ago and I liked how they looked. I spaced mine about 3 feet apart but once they got going I had to check them everyday to make sure they stayed in their area so I could collect seeds without mixing seed collection.It's just natural for the vines to run into each other but the view will be awesome! Good luck, hope you share your pictures with us.

Each fence section is 7 feet long and 4 feet high. Do you think I should put one or two plants on each section? If I put one they won't be able to comingle but I want it to be a fully covered.
I've been out there trying to get all the grass and weeds out so I can level the ground before I start the inner ring, what a dirty job.
I'm over 50 and lugging 8 wheelbarrel loads out to the compost pile is hard work.
Where are my children when I need them?

Domehomedee, I think I would be tempted to have at least 3 plants per 7 ft. for the maxime look. If you don't want to chance it then 2 plants.
I'm growing mine in gallon pots with a bamboo stick right now they are very close together and not trying too hard to climb on the neighbors stick. If you don't mind having mixed seeds I'd go for it.

I think we are all up in age, last year I paid my grand son to turn over the soil for me in one area so I could plant some in the ground. He likes earning a little spending money. What you're doing is hard work but you will have a nice reward with beautiful blooms to enjoy.

Nick - thanks for the offer, but I have a feeling I'm going to have more seed than I know what to do with.
I love your flower photos. It's going to be fun looking up all the MG varieties so I can plant them with some concept of color coordination. Mostly so that it's easy to distinguish ones on the same trellis for seed collection.

I thought I'd share a picture of the MG garden 1/2 painted. The wind is already getting bad and it's not even 10am. I've decided to put a water feature, something low to the ground for the quail, in the center, and put a bench off to one side that faces a hillside (I'm standing on it to get the picture) I have already landscaped with agaves, aloes, and xeriacape plants. Looks like I'll be able to start planting tomarrow, that is if this feeling I'm getting a cold goes away.

Hi! I am new to DG.
Where do you all get these unusual (at least to me) morning glory seeds?
I am familiar with Heavenly Blue, Grandpa Otts, etc. that I see the big seed companies carrying.
I love the pictures I see here! I also love the idea of the morning glory garden!

Hi there Gardenblue2! Welcome to Dave's Garden.
I'm getting my seeds from a seed collector friend but whenever you find something you would like at Dave's Garden you can ask about it from someone who has it, just click on their name and that will give you access to send them a Dmail. Also when you look on specific plant pages in the Plant files you can access people who have the plant for trade by clicking on "Members who have or want this plant".

Gardenblue2, hi & welcome to DG! If you check out the PlantFiles here at DG, you can search the database to see which cultivars are available for sale from vendors as well as by trading with other DG members. There have been several generous members who have sent me seeds to fuel this addiction, and I'd be willing to send some to you, if you like. Feel free to send me a "D-Mail!" Here's a direct link to a search of the PlantFiles just for Japanese Morning Glory (which are mostly the kinds you're seeing here) -- http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/adv_search.php?searcher[common]=japanese morning glory&searcher[family]=&searcher[genus]=&searcher[species]=&searcher[cultivar]=&searcher[hybridizer]=&searcher[grex]=&search_prefs[blank_cultivar]=&search_prefs[sort_by]=rating&images_prefs=both&Search=Search

similiar.
In the 2nd block of pics, I love the purple with the wide white border more all the time, just a lovely
M/G.
My 13 yr old g son belongs to our city pool but we don't take the girls because they're younger and we can't stay up there all day with them. I can't get anything done now as it is.
We'll just put their small pool up here for them to cool off in.

I'm not a morning person either! I'll set my alarm clock so I don't miss the a.m. show. Then, if it's possible, I'll sneak back into bed for an hour or so. Sounds kind of crazy, I'll admit. But, that's the only way I'm going to see the true glory and get my daylilies hybridized. :)

Last night we had some surprise storms which ruined some of the MGs (& daylilies), but we need rain, so I didn't complain. This morning's best bloomers were...

A solid light blue growing where 'Morning Moon' is
'Denim Mix'
"Bright Blue for Blue Lovers"
'Morning Whispers'
"Chickencoopdark"

Y'all keep posting those wonderful photos that are so inspiring to see! I might be absent for a while, so take care everyone!

Thanks Jackie and Nick. Really nice Pandy bloom Jackie and very nice show of blooms too Nick. I don't know about the parentage of Blushing Bride cause it was "A" cross and very special too. But I'm happy with my cross too.

Had to get up early today too but it really wasn't by choice. Been a morning or two that I almost missed the blooms.

But this morning most special bloom is Q1298. Similar to one I had blooming last year!
The rest repeats of coarse!

Lovely blooms Helena, the dark Azuremore Choc is striking with its dark color.

Our rain didn't amount to much, we're hurting for rain here too

I loved the wide white area on this Saz, the ants did too..

Thank you Dany, Q117 is quite striking. I was hoping that it would be like the one in your link but maybe there is still hope. I like Danjulo a lot too. Thanks for the links.

We had rain and some of my vines were knocked down, but thank God the rain finally came.

I apoligize if anyone that got emails from my account, I did not send them. Some virus got hold of it and sent,just don't open it. Glad I got back a whole bunch of failure to deliver.

Here's blooms from today.

Thanks Jackie and Dany. Yes that looks like maybe rust started maybe when the leaves got wet from from a bit of rain. I'll be removing leaves as they show signs of rust.


Beautiful blooms Dany! Hope to see lots more of your mg's blooms.

Sorry mine are repeats.

Thanks Jackie. I agree with you, there should be others growing morning glories that could share their pictures. We do have an silent audience.

First bloom has a bit of defects but the color is blue purple.
2nd bloom has a lighter color bloom from the others.
Fuchsia pink.
Lighter stripes on some of the blooms.

Thanks Jackie. Glad your BB seed germinated, I'm thinking of maybe starting some more mg seeds. Last year it seems I had lots more, just wanted to make sure I got some of the neat ones this year. Guess there's time for more, been trying to get to the weeds out first.

It's been raining since last night so my mg's are getting a soaking.

I'm back. Well I finally got my seed, 20 MG varieties! I have been soaking a few every night and already have 12 kinds in germination trays. Some of the seeds are old but they seem to be hydrating well. I added a few other plants to the center of the MG garden. These are plants I have grown from seed also; mongolian sunflowers, single babies breath, cupid's dart, and maiden pinks. I'll keep you posted on the MG progress.

Nice blooms Helena. I hope you do start more sds since I know you will share with us. I love seeing
all the pretty pics, just makes my day
We got a good soaking Sun night and Monday. The 1st rain was so hard, it just ran off but the next day we got a slow soaker, just what we needed.
I've got 2 unknowns coming along, can't wait to see what they are, both from 09 unknown sd stashes.

Enjoying my pandurata blooms

Thanks Jackie. Your Pandy looks really pretty. Glad you got rain too. Well, I went through some of my seeds and am soaking a few more. Tomorrow I might do a bit more. Looking forward to your blooms too Jackie.

Your blooms look especially pretty today Helena. I guess all that good rain they got. My favorite today is
bloom # 1 with what looks like a pale pink eye to go with the soft blue and white, striking.

This orchid cactus was beautiful the other day and the fragrance is wonderful.
