Flowering

From Early Summer TO Mid Autumn

Convolvulus flower from early Summer all through Summer and into Autumn

 

Propagating by seed in Spring

From Early Spring TO Mid Spring

Sow seed in well-draining soil in full sun. These plants will trail well, so can be sown in seed-compost and seedlings planted out into hanging-baskets, or pots where they can trail over the edge of the pot.

 

Propagating by seed in Autumn

From Early Autumn TO Mid Autumn

Sow seed under glass in Autumn for flowers in early Summer the following year

 

Planting

From Mid Spring TO Late Spring

Plant out seedlings that have been grown in seed-trays (after hardening off, if grown in a greenhouse, or indoors) into a sunny site in well-draining soil
