Attn: Veteran Gourd Growers- Got Tips?

ThunderHawk(z8 TX)February 25, 2005

This will be my first attempt in growing gourds and I have already planted my seeds indoors.(Birdhouse) I have two little ones under the age of two and don't have alot of time to read.(Anything other than Dr. Seuss, anyway) What is ideal soil, timing, spacing, and sun for when I transplant them outdoors? Thanks for any advice.

ThunderHawk-I'm in your zone in Texas. I believe our last frost date is Mar. 17th or somewhere close to that. I started my gourds from seeds 3-4 wks ago and will be planting them along my fence line in about 2 weeks. They like sun even here in N Central Texas.
