Product Bio

Watermelon plants are very frost sensitive and exposure to cold temperatures can quickly kill them. Get a head start on the growing season by planting watermelon seeds in peat pots indoors approximately three to four weeks before the last frost date in your region. Once all risks of frost have passed, you can transplant the watermelon seedlings into the ground. This helps you to be able to enjoy the fruits of your harvest weeks earlier.Boosting the soil’s fertility levels before planting watermelon seeds ensures quick germination and seedling establishment. For the best results with watermelons, use 3 pounds of 5-10-10 fertilizer for every 100 square feet of planting space.

The warmer the soil, the faster watermelon seeds germinate. For example, it takes approximately three days for a watermelon seed to germinate in 90 degree Fahrenheit conditions, and approximately 10 days when temperatures are at 70 degrees. If starting seeds indoors, consider using a space heater or heating pad to increase temperatures. If growing the seeds outdoors, try laying black plastic mulch over the planting site to help absorb the sun’s heat and increase soil temperatures during the day, and in turn speed up watermelon germination.

Seeds that are planted too deep will fail to get established properly. For optimal germination, bury watermelon seeds at a depth between 1/2 and1 inch.
