Squash: Winter - Waltham Butternut Planting Instructions:
Squash plants grow best in warm soil, full sun, and are very sensitive to frost. Start seeds 2 weeks after the last frost, after the soil reaches 70 F. Plant the seeds 1" deep and 4" apart in hills or mounds. Mulch the plants to help maintain moisture. Plants will grow for about 85 days.

Squash: Winter - Waltham Butternut Harvesting Instructions:
When their stems turn a light yellow-green color, the plants are ready for harvest. Use garden shears to separate the fruit from the plant, as the rings will be thick and rough.
