first time for watermelon
I have a much bigger garden now and love watermelon so naturally I want to give it a try. I have sugar baby seeds. My plan is to try a vine or 2 on a trellis but my trellis is not straight up. I attached wire fence to the top of the 6' chain link and angled it down to a point about 3 feet out from the bottom. I also will do cantelope and cukes on another trellis the same way. I know a couple thing about them so any other advice would be great. Also might try a bigger type just for fun.
1. I know they Dont naturally climb so I'll help them and ill also let one sprawl if I have space.
2.I read that they Dont transplant well and peat pots are suggested if I try to start early. Is that worth it or should I just wait and start them in the garden?
