Summer Squash Seeds
Use light soil with a high organic content for most
successful culture. The summer varieties, nearly all of which
are bush growth, should be planted in hills 4’ apart each
way, while the winter or other runner varieties require
8-10’. When thinning, save only 3-4 plants per hill. You
can start plants early in peat pots indoors. As soon as
seedlings in the garden emerge from the soil, begin regular
dusting with recommended insecticides and fungicides to help
control Cucumber Beetle, Vine Borer and the spread of diseases
that affect squash.
