How to Care And Sow Red Rosy Morning Glory Flower Seeds
Starting the seeds of rosy morning glory indoors before the last frost day is optional, but it is good to be started 4-6 weeks before the subsequent frost date. If not, you can plant them directly outside. The scarification speeds up the germination process of the seeds, which are usually a bit difficult to germinate. Then rub with two sheets of coarse sandpaper for a few seconds and then soak overnight. Seeds should be planted approximately 1/4 inch deep and several inches apart. It is important to maintain a moist environment after seed germination.
Moist but well-drained soil is perfect for red rosy morning glory plants. Even if the vines are not working well, it is possible for you to change the soil for them. You can keep the bindweed hydrated by watering it about 1 inch a week and mulching it around the roots. Once the plant is established, the watering schedule can be reduced, requiring less water as it grows. Despite its toughness, early morning glory is resistant to both cold and heat.
