Summer Squash Seed Planting Information:

Summer Squash need warm weather to grow. The plants produce squash in 50 to 65 days, so there is no point of planting them indoors. It is best to plant seeds directly in the garden. Plant your seeds after the soil has warmed up. Thin so there are 4 plants per hill. Summer Squash produces abundantly, so there is no need to plant successive plantings. Eight plants will provide more than enough for a large family. You can trellis squash to save space. Plants grow 2 ft tall and vines spread up to 10 ft.
