 Cultivation advice Squash Summer Lemon

  • A sunny spot protected from strong winds is essential.
  • The soil should be well drained and rich in humus, the more the better.
  • For an early start (late Mar) place a single seed edgeways 1/2 inch deep in seed compost in a 3 inch pot under cover. The critical part is temperature, these need at least 65 F continuous soil temperature, inc over-night (preferably more to maximise germination rates) until germinated.
  • Plant out to growing position only after all danger of frost has passed and soil has warmed.
  • Keep the soil moist, water copiously around the plants, not over them.
  • Keep weed free to allow air circulation.
  • Once the plants start to fruit, feed every 14 days with a tomato type fertilizer, these are greedy plants.
  • Keep harvesting frequently to encourage more flowers.
