Thompson & Morgan Heritage Vegetables Squash Golden Hubbard 15 Seed

£1.99

Squash - Golden Hubbard

Hubbard squash have excellent, fine-grained, thick golden yellow flesh with a sweet flavour to match. The rather warted skin is a rich orange. The fruit weighs an average of 3.5-4kg. It can be stored over winter for a long time in a cool place indoors at 10C.

Sow seed 1cm deep in 7.5cm pots of free-draining sowing mix. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a plastic bag and place at 20-25C until after germination which takes 7-10 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination. It can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed. Sow 2 seeds every 90cm and thin out to the best seedling. Gradually acclimatise plants grown under cover to outdoor conditions for a few days before planting out after all risk of frost, 9cm apart. Plants have a vigorous trailing habit but can be trimmed to keep in check. Harvest up to first frost.
