will take 10 weeks for them to grow big enough to set out....much longer to flower

RE: moon flower seeds

Im in zone 6....I started some moonflower seeds in doors in my kitchen window sill, after soaking them for 24 hrs. I sowed 12 seeds only 4 came up..but they are sturdy, i only got them into the groung about 7 days ago, and i see they are fine as long as i keep them watered..I heard they dont transplant well, but so far so good. I soaked the rest of the seeds over night, and just put them in the ground...also 7 days ago so far no results..i had started morning glories at the same time, and transplanted those seedlings to hopefully mix with the moonflower, got red and blue MG's with (hopefully) the white moonflower...I dont know if its too late or not for blossoms..but i will just keep my fingers crossed!! good luck!

RE: moon flower seeds

I also started mine in a pot, but I let them get where they started to grow out of the pot before transplanting them. They never got very large but came back again this year and am in hopes they will get larger each year as we do enjoy the large white blooms. I just have to keep trying as I love all flowers and in this heat anything which will flower is a friend of mine.
