Water Melon Seed

Not a vegetable normally associated with British gardens but, given an early start, a fair summer and regular watering, good crops can be achieved. The plants have a trailing habit so need a lot of room or training around and within posts. Sow in the same way as Marrow, Squash and Courgette but start off as early as possible to get the full season of growth. Polytunnels can be used to get even better results.
