Growing Morning Glories

Last year I planted a packet of morning glory seeds. They came back this year. And they are so beautiful. Passion vine and morning glories have taken over this fence. I haven't lived here quite two years, but these seem firmly established. A ceramic sun is peeding through the leaves.

    I planted seeds about 4-5 years ago and a bit of the greenery started growing up the trellis the following year but never had flowers until this year. Our water pipe burst right under the plant (obviously got a good watering). The vines are growing on the ground and traveling up a slope (don't know if that's a good thing). Should I just let it go? By the way we have gophers!!!!

    in the fall do I have to cut the old morning glories back or do I just leave them?

    On Vancouver island in bc Canada, there is a very tall dying tree on the side of the Hwy. Dying from being choked from the bottom up. For 27 years I have driven by that landmark... many times over the years...someone had "removed" the vines completely! The following season.... the morning glories are back seemingly with a vengeance.

    I pull out the Morning Glories every fall and the next spring the seeds that remained on the ground start growing and I train the plants to grow up the pergola. Free plants every year and that's in Ottawa, Canada.
