I planted Morning Glory seeds two years ago. This is the first year it has grown and bloomed! With the exception of the sunflowers I planted with my Great Aunt Josie when I was about 10, I have never had success growing flowers from seed. For now the Morning Glory is in a large clay pot with three dowels serving as a topiary. I think that’s just fine, but they need to be replaced with taller dowels and set further apart.
I also have a yellow Gerber daisy on our patio table. Nathan bought it for me. I thought for sure it was dying, but it has three blooms on it right now and nice, healthy leaves. I think that’s all the container gardening I’ll enjoy this year unless you count transplanting myself into the gardens of others as I drive by their homes.
