melon Emir F1
Hi Guys, your advice please. I'm still learning about this gardening lark and decided to grow some Melons ( Emir F1) in my greenhouse this year so Purchased some Melon ( Emir F1) seed.
On reading the instructions it states:
'Pollinate by inserting male flower into female flower which has tiny fruit at the base'
My question is does the plant produce both male and female flowers and I pollinate from those or do I need a male and female plant to pollinate?.
I reason that it produces male and female flowers and i pollinate from that plant, is that correct?
Also there's nothing about sowing times. Do melons take a long time to produce true leaves or can I plant in March to start them off in a propagator?
