Sow seeds April to May. Sow in 7.5cm (3in) pots at 20-25C (68-77F) of a good free draining, damp seed compost, 12mm (1/2in) deep. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag until after germination which takes 7-10 days.

Growing instructions Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 7-10 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 90cm (36in) apart. Can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed. Sow 2 seeds every 90cm (36in) and later thin out to the strongest seedling.

Water squash regularly - do not allow the soil to dry out as this will impair their development. Hoe between plants regularly to prevent weeds from establishing. Squash appreciate an application of a high potash fertiliser every two weeks during the growing season. Harvest squash in late summer and autumn, before the first frosts, when the skin has hardened and the fruits start to crack near to the stem. Harvest squash by cutting each fruit from the stem leaving several inches of the stem attached.
