How to sow
Sow seed 2cm (3/4”) deep in 7.5cm (3”) pots of good seed compost at 21-25C (70-77F) from April to May. Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag until after germination. After germination, maintain a minimum temperature of 15C (60F) and keep the compost moist but not wet. When melon plants are well grown, transplant them at a spacing of 2 plants per growbag or 1m (3’) apart under frost free glass, or into frames or cloches outdoors. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for a few days before planting out individually to grow up a wigwam structure, or 1.5m (5ft) apart each way in well-prepared soil after all risk of frost has passed.
For optimum performance, sow under glass, but seeds can also be sown directly outdoors once the soil has warmed.Do not sow in cold soils. Direct sow 2 seeds every 1.5m (5’) in late May. When germinated, thin out to the best seedling. Ideally grow under cloches until plants are established.
