I've never had luck growing morning glories. I've seen them growing between cracks in the side walk, I've heard of people who mow them down because they grow so prolifically, I've seen them so lush they take your breath away but no matter how hard I tried I couldn't get them to grow for me. Can't seem to grow a tomato either, but that's another story.
My sister-in-law was one of those people who would mow, pull and ignore hers and yet got lush vines that were gorgeous. She gave me a jar of seeds a couple of years ago and I was a nay sayer. Pouting that it was a waste of time. But what the heck, I decided to try it her way. I dumped the whole jar of seeds into one single hole in the stony ground we have here. The next year I got a nice vine and a couple of flowers. I tried it her way again and let the seeds of those few flowers fall where they may. Last year I got a nice vine and several flowers, three different colors.
Again, I left them alone and this year I have beautiful vines and gorgeous flowers and I think it's going to work!
soon became this chubby thing. Eat and eat and eat.
