What do you do if your morning glories start leaning and growing the opposite direction of where you want them to grow?

Morning glories tend to grow towards the sunshine and that's probably what yours are doing. If you want them to grow in a particular direction you'll need to plant them so they'll have to lean in that direction in order to be in the sunlight. There's not much you can do to encourage them to grow into a shady spot, or into an area away from the sunshine. Take note of how your plants are behaving this year and replant next year, knowing what their growing habits are. I'm sure you'll have better success next time!
