Ipomoea 2023
« on: July 06, 2023, 06:52:53 PM »
Hi all ,

here starting my Ipomoea with flowers ...
One of the first is Ipomoea cairica ( received as cuttings from a plant friend )
They are now more than 2 meter high ...

Have fun
Hans

In my ignorance, I did not know that Ipommoea could be grown from cuttings.  Thank you, Hans!

It is not difficult Maggi !
I have made since some years cuttings from my I.indica ,I.alba ,I.leari ,
From the annual forms is it not necessary because they grows quick from seeds ...but with the perennial forms is possibly to save time
A other point is that many Ipomoea are not self fertil ...so they produce no seeds
I have no experience with Ipomoea who build a caudex ...but I have read that it should possibly ( I.platensis )

Which Ipomoea do you grow ?

This is a big fault !
They are easy and make a lot of fun
You can grow it in pots ,give it a little help for climbing and you have every day a lot of fun

It is a pity that I can not send you seeds because the Brexit ....

  Hans, you will find that many of us are disappointed with Brexit-  especially those of us who voted against it - so many of our great nurseries restricted in their business, for a start! ( My own personal opinion, of course!)
