Everyone seems to love juicy watermelon in the summertime. They are greedy, rambling vines, like all plants in the Cucurbita family
Planting & Care
Sunlight: keep them warm but out of direct sunlight so that they don't dry
out so fast
Soil: Watermelons have very shallow roots and they need lots of moisture. The soil should never dry out
Water: they need 1 to 2 inches of water per week.
Temperature: melons need warm temperatures up to 80°F during the day
Fertilizer: feed your watermelons regularly with something like pelleted chicken manure or another organic fertiliser. However, after flowering begins, use a fertilizer with less nitrogen.
