Germination of

Citrullus lanatus

Plush Pink Beauty Watermelon: Plush pink beauty, Watermelon

Citrullus lanatus

Citrullus lanatus: Watermelon seeds should be sown directly into the garden or a large container as they don't transplant well. Choose a spot with full sun and well-drained soil. Sow the seeds 1 inch deep and water gently. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. Germination should occur within 7-10 days.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
