I read the thread on Gem Squash, saw it was from a couple of years ago so thought it best to add a new one.
I want to grow Gem Squash (as in the South African varietal) but need to know:
a) how much growing time through to harvest?
b) do the runners themselves take root, or does the plant have a single root source?
c) what sort of soil?
In Calgary, there is a general gardening guide that says "don't plant until the early part of June". For good reason - we have reasonable chance of frost or snow right up till then. Thanks folks
