The Q&A Archives: blue morning glories

Question: I have a variety of morning glories as far as colors, however the blue ones have had one flower only and the leaves are now turning a yellow color with a brown surface on them. However it is still producing tons of new leaves and growing taller. What's up with the flowers? Thanx D.

Answer: Your blue morning glories need lots of sunshine and heat in order to bloom and they need no fertilizer at all. If they are in a shady spot, if the weather has not been consistently warm, or if they are being regularly fed (or their roots are near a lawn), they won't flower for you. They grow best in lean soil with deep soakings once a week. I wonder if you are giving them a little too much TLC?

Wish I had more information to share....
