Squash does best when it is grown in a location that provides the plants with shade from the hot afternoon sun. Select a planting location that is on the east side of taller garden plants, like corn or tomatoes, so the plants will have a reprieve from the scorching afternoon sun.

SOWING: Scallop squash should be grown in full sun, in rich, well-draining soil. Once the danger of frost has passed in your area, this little squash can be directly sown into the garden. They are usually planted in groups with 2-3 seeds per hill and spaced 2-3 feet apart. Thin them to one or two plants per hill once the seedlings attain a height of 2 or 3 inches tall. Give them plenty of room to grow like any squash; their vines spread 4-6 feet. The fruit should mature between 49 and 54 days. Keep the squash watered well. There are no secret scallop squash growing tips; the plants are relatively easy to grow.
