|Latin Name:||Cucurbita moschata|
| Growing Info:
Sow inside in modules from Apr-Jun 15mm deep with deeds on their side. Use free draining compost and keep above 10°C. Pot on to individual pots once germinated and plant out after frosts have passed in sunny location. Do not keep too wet or seeds may rot. Alternatively sow direct in May-Jun and cover with a cloche if frosts haven't passed.
Keep moist for good growth and to avoid drought stress, feed every 2 weeks with balanced fertiliser.
