Morning Glories, blue

Florida, United States Us

I had the most beautiful Morning Glories spring and early summer (I live in zone 8B). Now they are no longer blooming. The leaves are there but no flowers! Is it too hot for them during our Florida summers? I have never grown them before but am saving the seeds for next year.



In Britain they flower from about end of June or early July till September - perhaps yours start earlier and are tired by now! Might you get more flowers after its rested a bit? Any point in feeding it tomato food?

welcome Paticiamb, try dead heading and taking all the young seed pods off most of the plants. for some plants the setting of seed signals the death of the plant as it has fulfilled its destiny. you may then get fresh flowers. by leaving developing pods on at least one plant you will have seed for next year.

I will try the tomato food. And have also taken off the young seed pods to get the seeds for next year. I didn't get them all off. So will leave one with them on, and clear off the others. I do believe my lovely Morning Glory will not be back until next year. But that is something to look forward to. Thanks!
