  • Growing Instructions: Sow 20mm deep from mid April to June, in pots or trays of moist seed compost, and germinate at 20C, which usually takes up to 7 days. Try to sow the seeds on their edge for reliable germination. Pot on individual seedlings to small pots of compost, and plant out at 75cm intervals once frost risk has passed. Alternatively sow 20mm deep outdoors in rich soil from mid May to June, at 75cm intervals. Make sure they are kept well watered and mulched regularly and the marrows will be ready to pick from June to the first frosts. You will get a heavier crop and extent the season if you harvest them regularly.
