Water your melons deeply and consistently, ensuring the soil is evenly moist but not waterlogged.


To promote vigorous growth and fruit development, melons should be provided with full sun for at least 6-8 hours daily.


Use well-draining, nutrient-rich soil amended with compost to support melons' extensive root systems and nutrient uptake.
