When to Sow Delicata Squash Seeds

April to May under glass or Mid-May to June outdoors.

Where to Sow

As this is a compact variety, its suitable for growing in beds and large pots. Sow seed on edge 1.5cm (1/2") deep to prevent rotting in pots or trays during April to May 2.5cm (1") apart under glass at 20°C (68°F) using good quality seed sowing compost. Sow outdoors mid-May to June direct into growing site 1.5cm (1/2") deep 2 to 3 seeds in each position 90-100cm (36-40") apart.

What to do next

Greenhouse sowings should be gradually hardened off once they have developed the first pair of rough leaves and transplanted to growing site in late-May to early-June 90-100cm (36-40") apart once all risk of frost has passed. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to one plant per station.


September to October
