Soil Prepare your soil so that it is free draining and moderately fertile. It will tolerate a number of soil types. Add compost as part of your preparation.

Soil pH Level 6.5-7.0

Position Full sun with plenty of room to move. Position on the edge of your growing space, allowing it to creep away from your growing space, or set up a solid trellis structure to grow vertically.

How to Plant Sow directly into the patch. The best technique is to sow the seed, at 2-3cm in depth, directly into small mounds of compost that will ensure adequate nutrition and drainage. Keep well watered up until germination. Rockmelon is not frost tolerant so it is preferable to plant when conditions are regularly above 18 degrees. If cool, propagate in seed trays, keeping indoors at night and transplant when conditions are right.

Spacing 1.5m

Companion Plants Sweet Corn

Note: We source all of our seeds locally and in small batches to ensure they remain at their maximum viability for germination
