Description
I'm a fun plant to grow as I have spotted fruits with a long neck that make me look like an elegant swan. When my fruits are dried you can paint me with faces or leave me looking like a swan. Height: 2m. Why Not invite your friends round to see who can paint the most beautiful or funniest animal or bird?

These seeds are endorsed by the RHS.

1 packet (5 swan gourd seeds) (37236)

Sowing
Sow me from April to May indoors. Sow me in 7.5cm pots of moist compost. Make a hole 1cm deep and push in the seed on its edge and cover with compost.Put the whole pot inside a polythene bag and put it into a propagator or warm place at 20-25C. Keep the surface of the compost moist, but not too wet. I will start to grow in about 5-7 days.

When I have got two leaves plant me into 13cm pots and grow me in a bright position. After the frosts have gone, plant me outside in a sunny position 60cm apart.

Best grown on the ground - if allowed to climb necks will straighten when dangling from a support.

More Info

Pick the fruits from August onwards. Before painting, dry the fruits in a warm, airy position until they become lighter in weight.

Caution: not edible.
