1 packet (10 gourd seeds) (25762)

Sowing
Sow March to April in pots of moist seed compost.1cm (0.5in) deep. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a constant temperature of between 20-25C (68-77F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 7-21 days. When at the 2 leaf stage, transplant seedlings on into 13cm (5in) pots and grow on in well-lit conditions. Can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed.

Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 60cm (24in) apart.

More Info

For best results, provide a deep, rich, well-drained soil in full sun.
