Can be grown in: These grow well outside, so if you have the space then go for a raised bed or similar, but they will grow well in pots too. Find out more about growing squash in our growing guide below.
In the kitchen: This squash is great for roasting, using in a soup or to make a delicious pie.
Plant out: late April to early July. These plants will arrive bare-rooted with an approximate height of 10-20cm.
When we deliver
We deliver these plants from late April/early May until July, depending upon the season. It is a little tricky for us to give a specific date as we do not use any artificial heat to raise our plants, so we are a little dependant on the weather.
You can order from…
These plants are available to be ordered and dispatched right up until late July, as the plants arrive as healthy young plants and will have already been growing for at least 2-3 months before you receive them, giving you a great head start on your vegetable growing!
Do I need to sign for them?
All our plant orders are dispatched with an overnight courier* to mainland UK and do not need to be signed for when they are delivered, but will be left somewhere safe. When placing your order, please let us know where you would like the plants left if you are not in when the courier delivers.
We will keep you posted
You will receive an email approximately a week before your order is dispatched and another on the day your plants are packed and leave us so you know to expect and prepare for their arrival.
