Good growth

4 out of 5 stars Dec 6, 2019
My Moonflower seeds grew well and produced a few flowers.
Bonnie from VA
Owner Response: Hi Bonnie, Thanks for sharing your experience. Moonflowers, like morning glories, do best in poorer soils and are sensitive to nitrogen, producing green growth over flowers when soil is rich with nitrogen. I am letting you know in case it helps get even more blooms in the future.

Beautiful Blooms

5 out of 5 stars May 13, 2020
These are very beautiful and vigorous vines that produce huge night blooming flowers. I have learned a few tricks over the few years of growing them, which I thought I'd pass along. Being in Maine, summers can be cool, so I grow mine in containers in full sun. For some reason they seem to always do better than others planted in the ground. I also feed mine biweekly with a bloom boosting fertilizer 10-30-10. I find this makes a huge difference and I get many more flowers and they bloom earlier! Last year I had as many as 40 huge blooms in one night, they smelled amazing! Definitely give this plant a try, its really fun to grow.

Owner Response: Thanks for the tips, Christopher! Growing in a container is a great way to warm up roots in a cooler climate.

I usually don't write reviews but this plant is just so special I have to share the word. It is SO easy to grow, and the flowers are as big as my hands! They smell like nothing I've ever experienced before.

Didn't grow

None sprouted in well-prepared soil. Planted according to directions and got zilch.

Disappointing Moonflower Seeds

1 out of 5 stars Feb 25, 2022
I carefully planted the Moonflower seeds and they were coming along fine; transplanted them and waited for buds or blooms to form. Nothing happened. Did not get one flower - and I had been wishing and waiting for the beautiful flowers to come - but was disappoainted because I only got leaves and no flowers.
Bernadette from NY
Owner Response: Hi Bernadette, We are sorry you didn't experience these amazing flowers--they are a customer favorite. It sounds as though the seeds germinated just fine, but something about the environment prevented flowering. Like morning glories, moonflower prefers poor soil and are sensitive to extra nutrients, especially nitrogen which would cause plants to have lush, green growth, but stifle flower production. We sure hope you will try again in a fulls sun area with lean soil. Happy gardening!

My first time ordering from this company - disappointing. No germination of the moonflower seeds which was my main reason for ordering. I followed instructions on the packet. No response from company when I contacted them.
Andrea from VA
Owner Response: Hi Andrea, We are sorry you had difficulty germinating these seeds and that you didn't hear back from us. A customer service agent will be in contact by email. Rest assured, our seeds are tested regularly to ensure germination rates meet federal and our own standards prior to packing.

Strong seeds

5 out of 5 stars May 19, 2022
I started 4 just to be sure I got one to sprout and all four came up strong! I can't wait to see the blooms, it is by far the fastest growing seed of all I've started this year.

Gorgeous Blooms

5 out of 5 stars Sep 8, 2022
I grew these indoors under a skylight, because I thought the Pacific Northwest summer might not be warm enough to transplant them outside. It is such a joy to watch these flowers magically unfurl when they bloom.
