I purchased a butternut squash a couple of weeks back, scraped some of the seeds into a clear container with compost and stood on the kitchen windowsil, I now have 4 plants about win tall, will they produce squash to eat or come up blind?



worth a try I would think Tercol! :)

Lots of soil, space, sun, and warmth needed, but very likely to produce if planted out when the soil warms.

Unless we have a stupendous summer and a long autumn its too late really to plant them outside in this country, as I discovered last summer... If they do set fruit limit it to three per plant.
