What’s so good about grafted veg plants? 

Grafting onto specific rootstocks, of course, creates bigger, better, more disease-resistant plants with increased yield. Consequently, we believe, the extra vigour which the plant obtains will provide even better protection to late Blight attack, and the plants will grow away from any infection even more rapidly.

Grow in the greenhouse or outdoors, little or no heating required. With excellent resistance to soil-borne pest and diseases - No more ring culture or grow bags you simply plant straight in the soil.

Caring for your Grafted F1 Hunter

On arrival water if necessary with tepid water. Leave them on a shaded windowsill or in a greenhouse for a few hours to settle before further handling, ensuring a frost-free non-draughty situation.

There is a possibility that your plant will include a grafting clip if it does, this is an integral part of the grafting process and that it should be left in place. As the plant grows it will naturally shrug off the clip.

Growing on - Plant out 80cm (2'6") apart in each direction in late May/early June after hardening off the plant. Support fruit must be supported by a flat tile or piece of wood to prevent contact with the soil which would cause the squash to rot. Apply a balanced liquid at 7-10 day intervals. Harvest the squash in September.
