RobinD said:You got a better bargain...mine were $2.25! I planted them against a fence loaded with Virginia Creeper....and poison ivy.....hoping the morning glories take over....The Grandpa Ott's variety would compete with them well. That one grows like a weed for me. I got the Heavenly Blue, I grew them before but they didn't reseed at all. Meanwhile the Grandpa Otts are everywhere and I keep pulling them!

I did that, and the results are terrible. My plants look rough, I presume from the too-cold nighttime weather.
In areas that don't get above 60º at night until July or August (if at all) there is probably not a good way to grow them because they need a long growing season, warm temperatures, and they have both a short day photoperiod and a need for warmth (that's the same reason planting them super early indoors won't necessarily speed up blooms).
