to be prepared well by using a shovel to break it up and then mulch, compost and fertilizer is added to provide an ideal condition for the growth of your melons. Melon plants or seeds should be planted in dirt hills on the ground. Put between 3 and 5 melon seeds in a hole about 2.5 cm deep and they should be apart by about 5.08 cm. If you are planting starter plants, the spacing should be about 5.08 cm as well.
