Thompson & Morgan Squash Harrier F1 Hybrid 10 Seed

£3.49

Squash - Harrier F1 Hybrid

This is an outstanding early British-bred Butternut squash. In T&M's trials Squash Harrier F1 was the quickest to ripen, and was ready to harvest approximately 95 days from sowing. The bushy plants of Squash Harrier have an open habit allowing the sun to ripen fruits naturally on the plant giving added sweetness. The pear shaped fruits weigh 800g with 4 to 5 fruits per plant, with excellent long storage at 10C.

Sow from May to June. Sow seeds 2cm deep in 7.5cm pots of good seed compost at 21-25C. Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag until after germination which takes 7-10 days. Seeds can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed. Do not sow in cold soils. Sow 2 seeds every 90cm and thin out to the best seedling. Ideally grow under cloches until the plant is established. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for a few days before planting out after all risk of frost has passed, 9cm apart each way. Keep well-watered throughout the season. Feed and mulch regularly.
