Cultivation Advice Squash Table King

  • A sunny spot protected from strong winds is essential.
  • The soil must be well drained and rich in humus, the more the better.
  • 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.
  • For an early start (Mid / Late Apr)
  • place a single seed edgeways 1/2inch deep in seed compost in a 3inch pot.
  • The critical part is temperature, these need at least 65F continuous soil temperature
  • (preferably more to maximise germination rates) until germinated,
  • so a propagator, well heated greenhouse or airing cupboard is ideal
  • Keep the soil moist – water copiously around the plants, not over them.
  • Keep weed free to allow air circulation.
  • Once the fruits start to swell feed every 14 days with a tomato type fertilizer,
  • these are greedy plants. Limit larger fruiting varieties to 2-3 fruits
