Growing Seedless Watermelon in the Garden
Q: Do you have information on starting seedless watermelon seeds? I have trouble getting them to live after they sprout
A: Seedless watermelons can be grown from seed but they need very warm soil in which to sprout. The best idea is to sprout seed indoors using a heat mat underneath a tray of potting soil. Transplant the strongest ones to your garden. Remember that you’ll also need to plant a “regular” watermelon nearby to provide pollen to the seedless melons. Since bee numbers are in decline, plant salvia, phlox, zinnia and bee balm amongst the watermelons to attract pollinators.
