Sow and Plant
Sow under cover in pots in late winter or early spring. Plant out after last frosts.
Our Garden Planner can produce a personalised calendar of when to sow, plant and harvest for your area.
One or two plants is plenty - they will usually produce several squash over a season.
Harvest regularly when the squash are not too large; this encourages more to grow.
