Growing melons in the home garden is so rewarding. Juicy, flavorful melons are a treat at summer picnics and get-togethers. Choose from a wide selection of melon seed for sale online, including watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew and others. Melons are sun-loving vine crops and can take up considerable space in the home garden. Before buying melon seeds, check the melon variety's space requirements. For the best growth and fruit production, melon vines need full sun, or six or more hours of direct sunlight daily, and well-drained soil. If growing watermelons in the home garden, keep in mind that most seedless watermelon varieties need a seeded watermelon plant nearby for pollination.
