my garden

Rock melon – sometimes referred to as Musk melon.

These grew surprisingly easily. In January I planted 2 plants as seedlings which I got the from the garden centre. I had successfully grown cucumbers in this patch for the last 2 summers and thought the melons might do well.Within a few weeks the plants were flowering. Unfortunately some of the flowers didn’t develop into melons. I believe they weren’t pollenated. Some did grow to very small melons but because the nights started to get cooler (below 15C) they didn’t mature.
