How to Grow Honeydew Melon Seeds


# 1 | Start your plants indoors just 2-4 weeks before transplant. Melons must not be planted until the soil temperature has warmed to 70-80 degrees F, so plan accordingly. If you are in a cold environment, you can plant the honeydew, and then cover the soil with plastic wrap to hold the heat in.


# 2 | Sow several seeds 1/2 inch deep in each peat pot, and keep them at 75 degrees F until they germinate (3-4 days)


# 3 | Thin to the strongest plant in each pot by cutting off the others.


#4| Gradually accustom the plants to outdoor temperatures by setting them outside during the day for a few days. Transplant the honeydews outdoors, plant each seedling 4-6 inches apart.


#5| Adequate moisture is crucial as the vines begin to develop, so keep the soil evenly moist.
