My melon plants have been in the ground now for 2 weeks and are trailing nicely. The leaves are a dark green and the plants seem to be healthy.
What I am wondering is if the watermelon trails before it blooms unlike the cantalope that bloomed the first day I planted it. If not, what can I do to force the blooms so I get fruit this summer?
I am currently fertilizing with Miracle Grow (nitrogen mix) and know about changing fertilizer once the fruit forms.
