When to sow: Apr-May
Summer squash tips: Sow in pots indoors from April and plant out in May; or sow direct in May. Cold sensitive, cover the plants with fleece if there is a danger of frost. For an extended harvest do two sowings, one in April and one in early June.
Summer squash are hungry and benefit from a good dose of manure or compost added to the soil before planting. Harvested when fruits are completely white, which means that they are ripe.
