Gourd seeds can be sown directly outdoors by planting one inch deep with five feet between plants and eight feet between rows. While growing, be sure not to overwater, as doing so can cause rot and mildew to spread throughout the vine. When the Gourds are ready to be harvested, the stems will turn yellow and can be cut off the vine.
