Cultivation Advice VEGETABLE SQUASH DELICATA HONEYBOAT

  •   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.
