Hi I am a newby to gardening, and I was wondering if anyone can help me. I have some moon flowers growing in a hanging basket,can they stay in the basket or will I need to transfer them to a box with a trellis of some kind? Also the weather here went from 90 degrees to 57 degrees and very overcast with no sun,what can I do to get them more sunlight?

Hi asam82 - if what you have is the moon flower vine, it will probably need to go into a bigger pot as these can get large. Not sure where you live but you may be able rig up something to reflect light against your plant (perhaps a few white boards placed where there is some light and aimed at the plant or some try some reflective material like foil to do the same).
