SowingEdit

IndoorsEdit

Sow seeds individually on edge in small pots of moist seed compost 2cm (1in) deep. Place in warmth 15-18°C (60-65°F). As seedlings develop, grow on under cool, light conditions, but not in bright sun.

OutdoorsEdit

Water sowing positions, then sow two or three seeds close together in a group 2cm (1in) deep. Allow 90cm (36in) between groups. After germination, leave only the strongest seedling in each group.

TransplantingEdit

Gradually accustom young plants to conditions outside for 2-3 weeks before planting out to their final positions when danger of frost has passed. Allow about 90cm (36in) between plants.

AftercareEdit

Water frequently, especially during dry spells.

HarvestEdit

Cut fruits when about 10-15cm (4-6in) long. Regular harvesting prolongs the cropping season. Larger fruits can be left to grow and used as marrows.
