The Q&A Archives: Morning Glory -- in Containers

Question: How deep (and wide) of a container should I use to grow morning glories? Will they attach to a wooden fence? The slats are a solid 10" wide stockade fence. Thanks! Sandy Hartford, CT

Answer: You can plant morning glories in a container--it should be at least 12 inches in diameter and fairly deep. Remember the larger the container, the less often you will need to water. Morning glories climb by wrapping their tendrils around whatever is available. They will do best when given string, wire, or a trellis to climb. If yours is a solid stockage fence, there may not be appropriate areas for the tendrils to grasp.
