Care Information

Growing Melons

  • Melons are best grown in a growbag in a greenhouse or outdoors, with 2 plants per bag.
  • If growing in soil, cover the soil with mulch so that the growing fruits don’t touch the soil.
  • The soil should be well drained and humus rich.
  • Plant melons 1m (3ft) apart and, if outdoors, choose a spot in full sun and sheltered from wind.
  • When flowers appear, select 4-6 female flowers that you want to become melons and hand pollinate them by placing a male flower inside each female. The male flowers are those with a swelling at the base.

Harvest

  • Melons are ready to harvest once you notice their sweet smell and cracks begin to appear near the stems.
