Sensational seeds week - waltham butternut squash
We're so close to Friday I can almost taste it! Today's sensational seed pick is from Helene: Waltham butternut squash.
"Every summer, I have to plant Waltham butternut squash. This squash has a delicious nutty flavour and bright orange flesh that stores well if let to mature for a long time on the plant.
It looks quite attractive on an arbour with bright new flowers opening up to pollinators in the morning on a vine that reaches 2-3 metres. I prefer to combine flowers and vegetables to attract more pollinators to my flowering crops as well as predator insects to keep pests at bay."
