How to Plant MELON Seeds
Start seeds indoors in 2 inch pots or cell packs 3-4 weeks before the last spring frost or (if you live in a long season area) direct seed into the garden after all danger of frost is past. Plant in the hottest part of the garden 2-feet apart in rows 6-8 feet apart. Comments: Using black plastic mulch or draping with floating row cover can give melons the heat they need in marginal growing areas. Most melons will slip easily from the vine when ripe. Smelling the blossom end can also provide an important clue - when ripe there will be an appealing fruity fragrance.
