Morning Glory Grandpa Ott`s Seeds
Info: Morning Glory Grandpa Ott`s is a beautiful vine with numerous velvety dark purple blossoms, which are streaked with pink purple from the centre.
As the name suggests, the Morning Glory has glorious funnel-shaped flowers in bright colours. They open as soon as the sun reaches the flowers and in the evening they twist back in. They are fast-growing climbing plants that can climb up to 3 m high and also provide good visual protection. They are easy to care for, get along well in the sun and semi-shade and only need a standard garden soil.
Sowing & care: Sowing takes place directly outdoors from mid-April to May, preferably near a fence or trellis for climbing. Sowing depth 2-3 mm and planting distance 40-50 cm. The garden soil should not be too acidic and should be watered and fertilized regularly. Avoid waterlogging.
