Sow seeds 2cm (1in) deep in 7.5cm (3in) pots of good seed compost at 21-25C (70-77F). Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag until after germination which takes 5-7 days. Seeds can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed. Do not sow in cold soils. Sow 2 seeds every 90cm (36in) and thin out to the best seedling. Ideally grow under cloches until the plant is established.

Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for a few days before planting out after all risk of frost has passed, 90cm (36in) apart each way.

Keep well watered throughout the season. Feed and mulch regularly.

Harvest August until first frosts. Fruits store throughout the winter if kept in a warm place.

    really good cropper and outstanding flavour , with very few seeds

  2. Quick cropper

    Never had any success with butternut squash growing until I tried Barbara - much quicker to mature than other so-called early butternuts. Tastes good too.
