A Love for Annual Vines from Seed

By Joannabanana
May 26, 2013

There are many annual vines that are very easy to start from seed. Some of these vines are enormous and will give you a gorgeous vertical display in the right spot. Most annual vines can be started from seed early, indoors, and/or direct sowed after the danger of frost is past. Many are suitable for either container gardening or directly in the ground.

Your garden is beautiful! I bought 6 fancy trellises but I never knew which vines to use. I never knew any of these beautiful flowering vines can be grown from seeds. Great info! Hurray!

Thank you Gigi. I hope you try some vines with your new trellises. I'm watching for a mandavilla vine for sale at a decent price. Some of the garden centres charge a lot for annual vines

I actually bought them end of season last year. I wanted to grow some cucumbers, green beans and string beans. And I like the bleeding heart and jasmine. Then DH started renovating the yard and now I'm not allowed to grow anything just yet. Hope it is not too late to start it.

I tip my hat to you.
The photo of the "heart" happened on it's own. It is the Catherdral Bells that hooked on the window boxes and I thought it looked cool, so I left it

Your vines and windowboxes are outstanding and add so much interest to your house. Love it! One vine you didn't mention that I like is dolichos lab lab. It reseeds itself most years for me. Will have to give some of the others a try too.

I did grow an hyacinth bean one year and preferred the scarlet runner for height and bloom. It was a nice vine though. Thanks for mentioning it
