    I grew suger babe melon last year and got a fair crop. I took a lot of the small ones off and left just four on and they grew to roughly the size of a small football. I grew them in the greenhouse.

    I won't now that you've said not to

    Bramble I think that's where I went wrong, I didn't take any off the plant, if it gets warm enough this year I'll take some off and see if I can beat my record and get some 6inchs across

    Good luck Poultrychat. We in our family all sat down and had a tasting and all voted that you would'nt taste anything like it if bought in a shop. If i had it over again perhaps i would't have taken so many off but will know better next time.

    I'm growing sugar baby this year and got four on the go in a grow bag - but silly me forgot to put drainage holes in the bottom of the bag and it got quite saturated. I've added holes now and tried to squeeze as much water out as I could, but I thinkt he melons have had it as they all seems to be going floppy.
