The Q&A Archives: growing squash from seedling

Question: I am wanting to grow banana squash. With our weather, would I encounter any problems starting them now?

Answer: According to the vegetable planting guide from the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension office, these are the best times for sowing squash in the low desert:

Summer squash: after mid-February up to mid-April, and then again from mid-August to the end of August.

Winter squash: throughout March, and then again from mid-July to the end of July.

These are guidelines. Your microclimate and each year's weather can influence results.
Good luck with your squash!
