The flower will produce a round pod with chunky seeds in them. When the pod becomes brown and papery, you can crumble them and harvest the seeds.

This year I have been really successful in growing my morning glories from seed and have about 50 plants of about 5 varieties. I want to collect seeds for me to use and exchange next year. I have read the posts saying the vine makes pods. Where are these pods??? What is the process for me to collectthse seeds? Any and all help is appreciated.

Raven,
My morning glories usually don't set pods until later in the season, last year my Grandpa Ott
didn't set their pods until fall. Be patient and they will come - you will have so many
you won't be able to collect them all.

I have read that it takes a few weeks for the pods to dry up, but its been well over three weeks since my pods have shown up and none have dried up. Is there anyway to make this process quicker, I'd like to get them before the frost.

Where are you located? It's more difficult to answer questions if we don't knkow where you are. Consider editing your page. For me here in Columbus, Ohio, I am just starting to harvest MG seeds.

When I lived in the D.C. area they grew wild in Virginia and Marland area. People still enjoyed growing them in their yard also. Down here in Texas they seem to just keep growing without much help. I don't think a freeze would hurt those seed pods as that is how many of them re-plant themselves in Virginia.

in zone 5, my morning glory seeds survive the winter, I would not worry about the frost getting to them. after I let some of them grow, I was pulling up seedlings all summer long (from last years seeds) and seriously a hundred every three weeks. and they are still comming up in october!! dont plant them where you might not want them next year!!

I was surprised the collected seeds are so much smaller than the packet seed used to grow the original vine.

I too wondered if they produced a vine as good or as vigorous as the original seed. I have not doubt there will be lots of seedlings from dropped seed but do they give the same bloom "show" as new seeds...don't know.
