The Q&A Archives: Morning Glories

Question: I have moring glories in a window box. They were growing fine indoors, the minute I put them outside the leaves wilted and they started to die. The were in full sun and watered well. What happened?

Answer: Morning glories do not tolerate frost, so they may have gotten too cold at night. They would also need to be hardened off or conditioned, in order to become acclimated to the rigors of real sunshine and wind as encountered outside. This process can take a week or so and should be done prior to planting. I'm sorry about your vines!
