Last year I had no trouble starting bottle gourds but this year nothing seems to want to start. Made cuts on seed coat and soaked while keeping warm, nothing. seeds were bought from a reputable source. Any suggestions?
My advice to you is while you're being patient, waiting for those seeds to sprout, -- buy more seed.
You will find a few seed dealers in this website...
Here is a link that might be useful: gourds and gourd seeds
Thank you, followed your advice and am trying again.
