About Seeds

Seed is a live product which depends on variety of important related grower skills.  Serious consideration must be given to proper planting time, seed depth, and type of soil, proper pH factor, irrigation, and proper use of fertilizers, weed controls, fungicides, insecticides, disease free soil and reasonable weather conditions throughout your growing season.  These factors are totally out of the seeds man's control and are the grower's responsibility and risk.  PH balance refers to the acid/alkaline balance of soil.  The pH scale goes from 1 to 14, with 1 being totally acid and 14 being totally alkaline.  Neutral soils measure at 7.0, gourds like soil that is slightly acidic, that is between 6.0 to 6.5, this is ideal soil for gourds.  Very acidic soils may require the addition of lime to raise the pH levels; if the soil is too alkaline, it may be necessary to add sulfate of ammonia to reuce to pH.  Our seed cannot be unconditionally guaranteed to perform properly regardless of weather conditions or the grower's methods or mistakes.  The best advice you can get is contact your local Agricultural County Extension Agent, have your soil tested for growing gourds and follow there expert advice.
