I have prepared a new bed in the garden that will be specifically for various squash this year. Lots of pumpkins, butternut squash, and other squash type fruits. We will see how the south-facing ‘bund’ does.
When sowing squashes or courgette, sow the seeds on their side, about 1.5cm deep, this should give them a hand when germinating.
Water in well, and if there is still a chance of a frost, keep them in the heated propagator until it passes.
Sow outdoors March to May (I chose to sow indoors in individual pots, to ensure I get good propagation in the heated propagator – these will then need to be hardened off to get used to the cooler temperature before planting out).
Plant out when big enough 90cm/ 3ft apart.
