Q.morning glory fall maintenance

Anonymous added on November 14, 2014 | Answered

Please help. This is my first successful summer growing morning glories. But now that winter has arrived, they’ve gone dormant. I live in New Mexico and don’t know how to prep or do anything for the winter so they’ll come back next summer. I’ve got a neighbor that completely cut his away and I’m assuming he did so in order that they will grow back. Do I need to do the same?

Morning glories are actually annuals, but they are self-seeding annuals. The vines you see now are dying and can be cut back. In the spring, the seeds from those vines will regrow as new vines. Be careful though, sometimes morning glories reseed so well that they can become a nuisance.
