Summer and winter squash grow quickly to maturity within 50 days, so quick seed germination isn't really an issue. Winter squashes, on the other hand, need a long, warm growing season. Getting them started as quickly as possible ensures enough time for an ample harvest. When given enough warmth and moisture, squash seeds emerge within 6 to 12 days.
- Direct sow summer squash in the garden in spring after all danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed to 70°F (21°C). In warm-winter regions, sow squash in midwinter for harvest in early summer.<
