New at please

This will be my first year at growing gourds and I have a few questions.
First, I think I am out of the frost danger now, when can I plant my seeds...... bird house gourds and apple shaped gourds?
Second, I want my daughter to have some gourds for her Children's garden and it is only partly sunny.....will they grow there?
Thanks for the responses and help.

Hi'I take a pice of sandpaper and ruff the ends a little, then soak them in water for about 24hrs. You can start them inside, if you want to e-mail me' maybe try to tell you more. Have a good day.

Start your gourds on large pots until they are 6-8" high, then transplant into your garden. The gourds need at least 6 hours of sun daily. Use hot pepper spray to keep bugs away.
Happy Harvest,
