Planting Instructions for Birdhouse Bottle Gourd Seeds

Birdhouse Bottle Gourds are heat loving vines that require a long growing season, and lots of room to sprawl. For large, thick shelled gourd seeds soak overnight to speed germination. Plant Birdhouse Bottle Gourds after danger of frost, in full sun, 1″ deep, in 1′ diameter hills, 4-5 seeds per hill, hills 4-5′ apart, in rows 5-10′ apart. Thin to 2-3 plants per hill. In cooler climates start Gourd seeds indoors in individual peat pots, 4 weeks before last frost. Germination should occur in 10-15 days in soil 75-90°F. Can trellis small-fruited varieties to conserve space. Harvest Gourds once the fruit’s stem turns brown. For dry gourds, will likely require further drying in a cool, dry, well-ventilated space.
