Gourd Seed Planting Information:

Gourds grows well in hot and humid regions, but can be grown in northern regions if seeds are started indoors. Plant your seeds indoors in large plastic containers several weeks before last frost. Transplant outdoors in garden when soil is warm. In southern regions you may plant seeds directly in garden in hills. Gourds have climbing vines and should be grown near fence or trellis to keep them off the ground. Plants will produce better if supported off the ground. Some types of gourds need to develop on the ground to retain their unique shapes. Add humus after seeds have sprouted to prevent soil from drying out. Plants grow 2 ft tall and vines spread up to 10 ft.

Warning: Do not plant in cold wet soil or you may experience poor germination!

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

The soil should be continuously moist, but not waterlogged. Water well during dry and hot spells. Make sure plants get ½" water per week.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.

Harvest Tips:

Cut gourds from vines about 1" above the fruit with garden scissors when they are mature.
