How to Grow Melons in our garden 

You may enjoy growing melons in your garden! This step-by-step instruction will help you grow melons.  

Choose the Right Variety  

Choose a melon for your climate and garden. Common types are watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, and muskmelon.  

Choose a Sunny Place  

Melons thrive in direct sunlight, so find a garden site with 6-8 hours of it daily.  

Prepare Soil  

Melons like fertile, well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0–6.8. To improve soil fertility and texture, add compost or well-rotted manure before planting.  

Planting  

Melon seeds or seedlings should be planted after frost has passed and soil has warmed to 70°F (21°C). Plants should be 2-3 feet apart in rows or 4-6 feet apart in hills.  

Watering  

Melons need constant hydration, especially during flowering and fruiting.
