I've been growing moonflower from seed for the past couple of years. I then plant them under a trellis, then they take off climbing in early August.
Unfortunately, I've never been able to actually see them flower because my zone has been wreaked with horrible October storms the past couple of years (hurricane Sandy to name one), thereby killing everything off. This year they fell victim to a brief non-storm cold snap.
I'm recalling planting them in the ground in May. Should I get them in earlier? Am I just doomed in general because of my zone?
I would love any tips on moonflower growing in general, especially what time of day to go outside to watch them open (if I should ever be so lucky to get a flower).
