Growing Your Sqash From Seed In 5 Simple Steps
# 1 | Gardeners with short growing seasons may want to start their Scallop Summer Yellow Bush squash seeds indoors a month before the last expected frost. Since squashes do not take well to transplanting, peat pots are the best option
# 2 | Plant two seeds per pot, later clipping off the weaker seedling.
# 3 | Harden the seedlings by exposing them to the weather for several hours at a time during the week before transplanting.
# 4 | About a week after the last frost or when the soil temperature reaches an average of 65 degrees F, plant the seedlings in very rich soil 8-10' apart in rows 10-12' apart.
# 5 | Another option is to plant the seedlings in hills of two, 8-10' apart. To direct sow, plant Scallop Summer Yellow Bush squash seeds when the soil temperature reaches at least 70 degrees F. Plant them 1/2" deep, 3-4' apart and thin to 8-10' apart. For companion planting benefits, plant squashes along with corn but avoid planting them with potatoes.
