Planting in Spring

From Mid Spring TO Late Spring

For an encouraging start, Cypress vines need to be kept in a warm greenhouse/window sill /conservatory until all signs of frost have gone. Ipomea are delicate and don't like the cold, soak the seed overnight before sowing. Can be planted in greenhouse or conservatory.

 

Flowering season

From Early Summer TO Early Autumn

Blooms will usually start the first of summer and continue until autumn. It will grow blooms that are white, bright red, or rose, and they are produced in mass! They stay opened all day
