Anyone can plant squash successfully. Just follow these easy steps to give your plants a solid start.

Step 1

After working in fertilizer or soil amendments, make a mound of soil about 3 inches high and 18 inches wide. This is for good drainage and warmth in the spring when the soil can still be cool.

Step 2:

Set two or three summer squash plants 4 to 6 inches apart in the mound. Water gently with a watering can or gentle spray of a hose immediately after planting. Space mounds about 3 to 4 feet apart. Winter squash, which produce longer vines, need at least 4 feet between mounds, but 6 feet is better.

Step 3:

Mulch plants lightly a couple days after planting.
