Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward

After all danger of frost, in a sunny location, sow a few Organic Early Prolific Straightneck Squash seeds spaced evenly over a hill 9"-12" tall and 2' across. When the plants are 3" tall, thin by cutting all but the 3 strongest seedlings per hill. To avoid weeding, mulch heavily around plants and in the rows.

Planting Depth: 1"

Seed Spacing: Sow your Organic Early Prolific Straightneck Squash seeds roughly 4' apart in rows, keeping rows approximately 3' apart.

Nutrient Care Instructions: Apply SUPERthrive once per week. Soak in solution of 1/4 tsp per gal for 15 min. or longer depending on size and type.

Suggestions Chevron Down Chevron Forward

Pick summer squash early and often. Not picking will stop the production of the plants. Ready to harvest just after blossom falls from fruit and fruit can be easily dented with a thumbnail.

At Ferry Morse, we are proud of our non-GMO & guaranteed fresh seeds.
