Ipomoea is a beautiful climbing plant that can reach up to 3 meters tall. It looks stunning ascending up a sunny wall, or in a cool greenhouse. It is a plant that thrives on poor soils; so where you can never plant anything you could have an attractive Ipomoea!
A half hardy annual, Ipomoea seeds need to be sown between February and April under glass in a gentle heat, or straight outdoors during May for flowering through July to September.
Ipomoea seeds should germinate within 5 to 20 days. Once the seedlings emerge grow on in a warm frost free place. The Ipomoea plants need to be acclimatised to outside condition before planting out up against a sunny wall or shed.
