Repot each plant into a slightly larger container, using soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Alternatively, plant them directly into sunny, well drained borders, against a sheltered fence or wall.Attach the twining stems of the Snail Tree and Morning Glory with soft ties to a suitable climbing support. Water well to settle the soil. Snail Tree plants and Morning Glory plants are frost tender. Containers can be positioned outdoors in a warm sheltered spot during the summer months but should be moved to a frost free position before temperatures fall below 7° (45°F). Alternatively grow them outdoors in borders as an annual.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season. After flowering, prune stems lightly to maintain the shape of the plants and restrict them to their allocated space. In winter, reduce watering so that compost is kept just moist. Repot container grown plants into increasingly larger pots when necessary.
