container moongarden

Myyst(z8 satx)August 31, 2005

Hello, I am new here and a new gardener as well. I am attempting a container gothic moon garden.. and I say attempt because most everthing seems to be turning brown, the heat I suppose. My question is, I have finally been able to get my moonflower seeds to germinate and they are growing really well 2 plants are about a foot long and I have 2 others that are much smaller.... but how long before I can expect to see flowers? Also nothing I currently have seems to have any scent? I am planning buy some new plants over labor day, any recommendations, for something that will smell nice and work in containers?

You used the word "long"...........that must mean you have the vine? My vine never bloomed at all this year. I also have 6 or 7 of the bush(?).......about 4'tall and they have tons of exceptional white flowers. I have heard other people on the forums say their Moonflowers give off a wonderful scent...........but mine don't. Hmmmmmmmm! Ok, TONS may be exaggerating a bit!
