Moonflowers can be started indoors, or directly outdoors. Whichever method you choose, it is best to soak the seeds for 24 hours or scar them with a knife or sandpaper, prior to sowing. If started indoors, sow in peat pots 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost, at a depth of 1” under topsoil. Transplant or direct sow outdoors when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed.
Moonflowers will enjoy an area that receives full sunlight for the majority of the day. They prefer a rich soil that is also very well drained. Adding compost to your area of hard compact soil will improve drainage. Water daily with a mild water setting so that the soil is moist until germination has occurred.
Your Moonflower seeds will begin to germinate within 7 to 21 days after sowing. The plants grow to a mature length of 8 to 10 feet long and can be spaced 12 to 18 inches apart from one another. Lavender Moonflower displays beautiful, 2 inch, flowers that begin to bloom in the evening hours of the day.
