Cultivation Advice Squash Little Gem Trailing

  • Sow seed  1/2″ deep in soil. Depth is important to prevent rotting.
  • Sow these seeds between April to May, with a minimum temperature of 18-20°C
  • A sunny spot protected from strong winds is essential.
  • The soil must be well drained and rich in humus, the more the better.
  • I fill each hole at least 12” square
  • with garden compost and paper at the bottom into which goes a single plant.
  • For bush varieties 24in between each plant is fine – 48in for vines.
  • Many winter Squash / Pumpkins like to sprawl out and need plenty of space.
  • Vining Squash / Pumpkins require a larger area to run,
  • whilst semi-vining and bush varieties of winter squash / courgette can be well contained.
  • If space is tight just keep turning the branches back to the centre to prevent spreading and over-running other plants.
