Although Morninglories try to take over in my garden every summer, this year I’ve purchased a number of fabulous looking packets of seeds, to try to win the vine war. However, I did so last year as well, and nary an interesting annual vine, aside from the miserable morninglory, survived, or even grew. I started most of them inside, following the fairly tedious directions, and total failure ensued. After trying to grow several varieties of Passionflower, I asked a nursery owner about this, and he said " Oh. very difficult to start from seed, we use cuttings".
So, this year I bought Vigna Caracalla (corkscrew vine), 3 Asarinas, Clianthus Formosus (Glory Pea Vine), 2 Aristolochias, and Akahigezaki Hige Japanese Morning Glory. My question is, am I about to have the same experience with these vines, ie, impossible for anyone outside of a nursery to grow, or, are any of these relatively easy? Can I perhaps, forgo trying to start them indoors, and just sow them in pots outdoors? On my partner’s roofdeck in nyc, it’s over 80" today- I will kill myself if I do the indoor thing and get the same result as last year.
What do you think?
