Growing Watermelons

Anonymous added on July 23, 2011 | Answered

I am growing watermelons for the first time. I have one melon that is actually at good size now. I am wondering if I should just let the melon lay on the ground or do I need to put something under the melon?

The following article(s) should be of some help to you: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/watermelon/growing-watermelon.htm

Typically, watermelons can remain on the ground without any problems; however, many people prefer to place the young melon on a piece wood (piece of plywood, 2x10, etc.) to keep it off the ground, where in some locations or overly wet conditions, the melons can be susceptible to pests or rotting. Please let us know if you have any other gardening questions.
