Product Information

Specially bred for the British climate, Butternut squash ‘Hawk F1’ yields a good crop of yellow-orange, pear-shaped fruits with sweet, tasty yellow flesh. Fully deserving of its RHS Award of Garden Merit, this reliable variety will produce fruits of up to approximately 700g (1.5lb).

Easy to grow from seed and quick to establish, this is a great choice for novice and experienced gardeners alike, as well as ideal for introducing children to gardening as they will see fast germination followed by a satisfying spectacle as the plants produce attractive, large flowers, and then squashes that noticeably increase in size day by day over the summer.

A versatile vegetable that has grown in popularity over recent years, Butternut squash is great to cook in a variety of ways such as roasting or baking, or as an ingredient in soups, stews and curries. Packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, it is a good source of fibre and low in calories – and it tastes great, too!

Supplied as a packet of 10 (approx.) seeds ready to sow indoors in pots or outdoors directly into their cropping position. Sow indoors March to May in small pots or outdoors in May, directly where they are to flower. Plant 90cm (36in) apart in fertile, well-drained soil. All they require to thrive is a sunny position with plenty of space for them to spread out and a liquid feed applied ever 10-14 days once the fruits start to swell. Harvest from September to October.

Top Tips

  • Water frequently, around the plants rather than directly over them. Do not allow the fruits to sit on moist or wet ground, which may cause them to rot.
  • Harvested fruits can be stored in a dry, frost-free location for 1 to 2 months.

Care Information

How to grow Squash

  • Sow indoors, March to May, for surest results, 1.5cm (˝in) deep, on edge, in small pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep most. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out 90cm (36in) apart, when frosts are over.
  • Or sow outdoors, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (˝in) deep, directly into finely prepared soil that has already been watered. Allow 90-150cm (36-60in) between sowing positions to allow for spread. Sow two seeds on edge per position. Early sowings benefit from cloche protection. Thin to leave the stronger plant. Water well until plants are established and once the first fruits start to grow, feed every 10-14 days with a high potash liquid fertiliser for optimum growth.
  • Harvest: September to October.
