why does it take soooooo long for morning glory to start growing, if it Does at all? I have such a hard time every year! When they finally do begin to grow, its' already AUGUST!!!!

Ahh... the key is to nick the seed coat so the seeds can soak up water and sprout earlier in the season. Use a file or a sharp knife to just break the outer coating of the seed so there's an opening for the water to soak in. You can even pre-soak the seeds 12-24 hours prior to planting. This process will prepare the seeds for earlier sprouting and you'll have plants growing within weeks rather than months. Give it a try!
