GROWING TIPS: Choose a location with full sun and fertile, well-drained soil is best, with a pH of 6.0-7.0. Row covers can and should be used to establish seedlings but removed when first flowers begin to form. Gourds can also be grown on sturdy trellises. TRANSPLANTING: Sow 2 seeds 1″ deep in 3″+ containers 3 weeks prior to transplanting date. If growing a mixed variety, sort seeds into groups by shape and size prior to sowing. Thin to 1 plant per container/cell with scissors. Harden off plants 4-7 days prior to transplanting. After danger of frost has passed, transplant out at (small 18-24″), (medium 24-36″) and (large 36-48″). Space rows at 6-12. Handle seedlings carefully; minimal root disturbance is best. Peat pot containers work best. DIRECT SEEDING: Sow in late spring, when soil temperature is at least 70°F and danger of frost has passed. Sow 2 seeds at each spacing interval (above), 1″ deep; thin to 1 plant per spacing interval after seedlings are established.
