Moon Flowers - bdwest - 11-28-2009

Can moon flower seeds from the plant be successfully saved to plant in the following year? Advice for successful germination? Any details appreciated. Did not have success this year.

Moonflowers are relatives of the morning glory which is well known for its self-seeding habits. To start seeds indoors, you'll need to begin 4-6 weeks before your last frost. First scarify the seeds by nicking the seed coat with a knife or rubbing the seeds between sheets of sand paper. Soak the seeds overnight in warm water, then plant the seeds in peat pots. You may also be able to scatter seeds on the ground where you want them to grow after your last frost in the spring. Rake them in gently, and keep them watered until they're growing well. Just know that if the seeds you are growing were from a hybrid plant, then the seedlings you see the next year may not look exactly the same as their parents. Good luck and have fun!

Thanks much. May have overwatered the seedlings. Will try again from a seed packet this year. Can you comment on how to tell when the seeds are ready to harvest-e.g.. you can hear the seed when you shake the "pod" at the end of the growing season.

Last year my child graduated from high school. We decided that we should give a bouquet to teachers. In the current circumstances of the pandemic, shopping is problematic, so we decided to use the services of an online store. My son chose the beautiful compositions and we arranged the delivery. Everyone was happy! If you also want to make someone happy, go to these guys, I recommend it.
