Give this stunning and unusual watermelon a try to impress your guests! Bred to crop well in Northern Europe, watermelon 'Sunlove' is a brand-new Jubilee type mini watermelon with amazing yellow flesh. Vigorous yet compact plants, producing less foliage than other cultivars, bear 3-4 striped green mini melons weighing 2-3kg. The beautiful yellow flesh has few seeds, a fantastic fresh, juicy flavour, and a high sugar content – deliciously refreshing on a hot day!

Best grown in a greenhouse or polytunnel, watermelon 'Sunlove' forms a spreading plant that can be allowed to trail across the ground if you have room, but is best trained to a wigwam or netting to keep the fruit off the ground. Height: 40cm (16in). Spread: 400cm (157in).

Give this stunning and unusual watermelon a try to impress your guests! Watermelon 'Sunlove' is a brand-new Jubilee type mini watermelon with amazing yellow flesh.

Pot up young melon plants and grow them on until they are large enough to be transplanted. Maintain a minimum temperature of 15c (60F) and keep the compost moist but not wet.

When melon plants are well grown, transplant them at a spacing of 2 plants per growbag or 1m (3’) apart under frost free glass, or into frames or cloches outdoors.

When growing melons outdoors cover the soil 3-4 weeks before planting with a plastic mulch. Gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7–10 days before transplanting into warm, well drained, humus rich soil in full sun, with shelter from winds. Plant in single rows at a distance of 50-90cm (20-36") apart leaving 2m (6’) between rows. Pull a little soil around each plant to keep it from touching the plastic mulch. Water well after planting until melons are fully established.

Live Plants

Organic Garden Catalogue strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.

Non Standard Deliveries
