    Default Offered: Squash "winter" butternut seeds (10)

    I think getting these was a bit ambitious so I shall leave it to those of you who are more experienced.

    I just bought them last week and the pack is unopened.

    If anyone has any seeds more appropriate to a beginner who is restricted to pots and containers that would be very much appreciated!

    why dont you try one or two and give away the rest - can grow in a container - I am trying for the first time this year, have germinated quickly and easily. Planning on trying in ground and container - with lots of good compost.

    Dear SunnyU
    I have grown those in a largeish container in the past, and had some fruits, not many, but it was fun. The key my dad told me is to keep them well watered and fed.Just thought I would you know,
    good luck
    Kind regards

    Excellent! Thanks for letting me know. I was told they would grow on large vines and would take up lots of space but I will certainly try a couple now.

    So if anyone out there still wants some, then there'll be at least 5 to 7 seeds left.

    thank you
