Planting Instructions for Crimson Rambler Morning Glory Seeds
Start Crimson Rambler Morning Glory seeds 4-5 weeks before transplanting outdoors. Soak Morning Glory seed for 48 hours in a wet paper towel or nick the seed coat with a knife to speed up germination. Use 3″ or larger pots and plant 2-3 seeds per pot 1/4″ deep. Morning Glory germinate at 70°F. After emergence, insert a small stake into the pot to keep the seedlings from becoming entangled. Morning Glory seeds may be planted outdoors in early summer when the soil has warmed up to about 70°F.
