How Much Seed Do You Need?
How many melon seeds do you really need? A packet has anywhere from 10-25 seeds, depending on variety. You need 3-4 per hill.
Get your gardening friends together and create a seed swap. We’re both growing cantaloupe and spinach this year – so you buy the melon and I’ll get the greens!
No gardening friends? Make some…or join this free forum, where you can find the seeds you’ve been looking for, and share your excess seeds with others.
In the forum, traditional swaps are a 2-way trade. Interested parties will contact you by phone or email.
If you don’t have any seeds to offer, don’t dismay, you may still find someone willing to help you out with your request.
Your submission will remain posted on the forum for 30 days.
