Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews

Enjoy the refreshing taste of melons harvested straight from your own garden. This duo of grafted plants will produce delicious, juicy fruits in your greenhouse or a sheltered sunny spot outdoors. Give these vigorous F1 hybrids plenty of space and you will be rewarded with fruits throughout the summer. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 200cm (78").

Reap the benefits of grafted vegetables! Top fruiting varieties are grafted onto more vigorous rootstocks to produce the best possible crops. These vigorous plants produce a huge increase in yields over a longer cropping season, with better tolerance to pests and diseases.

  • Melon Grafted Duo comprises:
  • Melon ‘Perseus’ - A charentais-type melon with fruits weighing up to 750g!
  • Water Melon ‘Mini Love’ - A very early ripening with sweet red flesh.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Melon plants can be trained upwards on strings or wires, or allowed to spread flat on the ground. Pinch out the growing point after 5 leaves have formed to encourage lateral shoots to develop. Select 4 vigorous laterals and train these to 6 leaf stage, before pinching out each growing tip. Remove any other laterals. Fruiting sub laterals will then form on each stem.

Water melons regularly, particularly as the flowers develop, and provide a liquid feed every 10-14 days. Shade plants from strong direct sunlight. As the flowers develop, select 4 or 5 female flowers on each plant and hand pollinate them by placing a male flower inside each female bloom. Female melon flowers are identified by a swollen part at the base of the bloom. Once fruit has set remove any further flowers to allow the fruits to develop. Harvest melons when they begin to produce their characteristic sweet smell and the fruits start to crack near to the stem.

Pot up young melon plants and grow them on until they are large enough to be transplanted. Maintain a minimum temperature of 15c (60F) and keep the compost moist but not wet.

When melon plants are well grown, transplant them at a spacing of 2 plants per growbag or 1m (3’) apart under frost free glass, or into frames or cloches outdoors.

When growing melons outdoors cover the soil 3-4 weeks before planting with a plastic mulch. Gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7–10 days before transplanting into warm, well drained, humus rich soil in full sun, with shelter from winds. Plant in single rows at a distance of 50-90cm (20-36") apart leaving 2m (6’) between rows. Pull a little soil around each plant to keep it from touching the plastic mulch. Water well after planting until melons are fully established.
