TO PLANT OUTDOORS

Sow seeds 2 inches apart in a well-worked garden bed in full sun once danger of spring frost is past. Cover with 1/2 inch of fine soil and keep seed bed moist while awaiting germination. Keep seedlings well weeded and watered.

TO START EARLY INDOORS

Sow seeds 2 inches apart in a container of seed starting mix, 4 to 6 weeks before last expected frost. Cover 1/2 inch deep, keep moist and provide a good light source until seedlings are ready to plant outside. Transplant once weather warms up after gradually acclimating seedlings to outdoor conditions.

THIN OR TRANSPLANT

Space seedlings 6 to 8 inches apart when seedlings are large enough to handle.

GROWING NOTES

Royal Blue Ensign morning glories’ low bush plant habit is convenient and versatile. Grow them in beds or borders, or showcase their glowing color in planters where the striking deep blue will set off the warm yellows and oranges of Ladybird cosmos, dwarf marigolds, or zinnias. If plants get rangy in midsummer, trim them back halfway for another long flush of bloom.
