Melons need to be sown in warm soil. Like pumpkins, they are best sown on mounds, 1m apart. Sow 3 or 4 seeds where you want one plant, to ensure you get that, then excess seedlings can be pinched out. A sdandy, well drained soil of pH6 is ideal. While the vines are growing, they need plenty of water and nutrients, so good soil preparation is essential. However, once the fruit has set, too much water can lead to watery tasteless fruit.For large, lush melons, allow a maximum of 3 fruits per vine before pinching out the ends of the vines.
