I am having problems with my glories and the leaves are 6x the size of my neighbors. I would like to move some but not sure how or how to cut them back.

New to flowers

I don't know how you move morning glories. I don't think they'll do well if you do. I'd like to know how to save seeds. I don't see any.

Jiffy,
Most of the time,
You're not supposed to fertilize Morning Glories!!
*Alankhart and I have had this discussion before*

But I have tried a product called "Spray~n~Grow" on them, from QVC, and got some great results!!!
(it's a Micronutrient, and organic, non~toxic
and edible same day you spray it)

Also, try some organic Alfalfa Meal..???

Or get Shultz Fertilizer 10~60~10....

I wish I could get mine to grow - they've given about 2 inches max and have done nothing since.

I think I've just picked a bad spot.

South light - yes. By the fence - yes. But maybe the ground too deep from the retaining wall.

If I am able to work on this apartment building lot next spring, I think I'm going to build it up first. Maybe about 6 inches higher than what the ground there really is.

The weeds and wild stuff have absolutely no problem growing there, of course - they're waving away in the summer breeze like the Queen of England was cruising up the driveway.

When sorting seeds, do not whistle.

As too seeds...they will form where flower bloomed will be a green roundish pea looking thinggie.it will dry& turn brown& seeds will be ready but still let seeds set& dry a few days.They will bloom when get good and hot out,the hotter the better,You can speed that up next year by planting a brick with it.will warm the soil...and raised bed area will do also cause will warm soil faster.I fertilize mine at 1st then lay off.I can only transplant small starts.they have a deep taproot and if don't get all of it it won't make it& sometimes that can be 6-8 inches or more.wild ones are easier....when are YOUNG.They do better in sun but some hot afternoon shade will help.mine are just starting to bloom.I'd say 3 weeks now for 3 of them and my white MG just started Saturday,but are more shaded(cute too have like light blue sprinkles spots on them on the lined area,but the 1st 4 were solid white)
as too leaf size....my whites& moonvine leaves are large& my noah reds leaves are larger than my others which are small and have an ivy leaf also and its small.and sometimes new colors come from seeds if grow other MG as they will Cross pollinate by wind& bees.My Dark purples have a fushia color showing up in vine,but most are still that pretty purple.
