PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Ipomoea purpurea Ex. 'Grandpa Otts'
Morning glory 'Grandpa Otts'
Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, Annual, Climber, Half hardy
Flowering period July-October
Height 6-9ft/2-3m
Light preference Full sun
Soil preference Any, fertile, free-draining
Sowing time/depth March-April, 0.25in/6mm
An abundance of the familiar Morning Glory flowers, but in an intense deep-violet colour that will hit you between the eyes! Although it is possible that not all seeds will come true, I would expect most to do so. Attracts butterflies and other pollinating insects.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Soak overnight and/or nick the seed coating, then sow singly, 0.25in/6mm, in modules or two to a 3in pot, under glass in spring. Pinch out growing tips of seedlings when they are a few inches tall. Acclimatise to outdoor conditions and plant out when all risk of frost has passed.
