Cultivation advice Squash Festival F1

  • Sow from late Mar under cover placing each seed edgeways 1/2in deep in well drained seed compost. Min temp 70-85F. Lower temperature will induce rot.
  • Harden off steadily and avoid planting outside until the soil has warmed around Mid May in UK conditions. Protect young plants from slugs and snails.
  • Plant in a sunny protected site, with soil enriched by ample organic matter, 24-30in between plants. Keep well watered, fed during summer months and harvest regularly.
  • Leave fruits until early Sept to mature. Fruits are mature when rind is hard and stems start to wither. Cure Around 68F for 14 days. Store in a cool dark location.
