GROWERS GUIDE

Squash

Very easy to grow

Sow seed 1.5cm deep on their sides in pots. Harden off and transplant 60-90cm apart. Choose fertile soil on a sunny sheltered site.

Pinch out growing tips of trailing stems when 60cm long. Protect from slugs. Place larger fruit on a tile to prevent rotting.

Cut with a 10cm stalk when fruit have coloured and sound hollow when tapped. Let skin harden in the sun for 10 days if storing.
