Slow moonflower vines

I began growing moonflowers several years ago along the railing of my front porch. Seemed like my flowers were always later than everyone else so last year I started my seeds early, indoors. They did ok, but still were slow to flower and frost got the seed pods before they were ready to be picked. So, this year I bought both Burpee seed and Walmart brand, and again started them indoors but put them out back where they receive a good 8 hours of full sun. Now this time the vines are hardly 3 foot... and this is with starting them indoors back in early early spring. I've read that they really don't like fertilizer so I haven't this year. Mistake? Anyone have a clue?
