1 packet (8 squash seeds) (79870)

Sowing
Sow seeds mid April to June, 25mm deep in pots or trays of moist seed compost and germinate at 20C for up to 7 days. Sow seeds on edge for reliable germination. Alternatively sow outdoors in rich soil in full sun from mid May through June, 25mm deep at 120cm spacing.

Pot on individual seedlings in to small pots of compost, keep barely moist to prevent stems from rotting and protect from strong sunlight with a sheet of newspaper. Plant out at 120cm between plants each way once frost risk has passed, then water and mulch regularly.

More Info

Harvest fruits regularly for heaviest crops and to extend the season. Harvest all fruits before heavy frost. Can be stored indoors at 10C for several months.
