Planting Tips for Heirloom Gourds:

Start indoors 4 to 5 weeks before last frost date.  After germinating, the emerging roots of heirloom gourd seeds will grow back down the seed so plant them with the root down and the point of the seed up.  The planting depth should be slightly deeper then the size of the heirloom gourd seed.  Cover the seed completely with soil but do not compact.  Gourds are senstive, especially so with transplanting.

When moving the heriloom gourd seedlings outside be sure that the last frost has past.  Gourds can be especially troubled by transplanting which is why some people will wait and direct seed them.  Plants shoudl be hardend off by slowly exposing them to cooler and cooler temperatures before finally transplating them outside.  Be sure to transplant before vines begin to grow.

Seeding Rate for Heirloom Gourds:

10,000-15,000 plants/acre,

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
