Small Gourd Mix
Cucurbita pepo-var. oviferis
A colorful mixture of several popular small gourds. These make wonderful fall decorations indoors or outside.
Planting Directions: Plant in spring when ground has warmed to 70˚, optimum 80 degrees. In cooler climates start seeds in a greenhouse 6-8 weeks before transplanting. Gourds require well fertilized, rich, warm soil. To help keep the soil warm, cover with mulch or black plastic before planting seed. Space plants 4 feet between plants. Keep soil well watered. May be trellised. Heavier gourds will need some support while growing on a trellis.
