We tried growing gourds this year. I took last years gourds and threw them in a big pile of dirt in the corner of the yard (on the bank by the crick). If they were going to grow, when would they have started? I tossed them there last fall.

I would have thought they would be growing already. I know they are a fall plant but you should see some leaves and the vines. Did you think they would just rot and the seeds would grow more?

Gourds can be grown anywhere on the ground, but if there's still no sign of growth, they may have received insufficient sunlight. Usually, it only takes 5 to 6 months for them to grow. It can thrive without much care, but the quality of the soil still has an important role. Do you think maybe its roots encountered a problem?

That's true. Vines should start to appear as soon as ten weeks after plantation because it'll need time for pollination. If it hasn't grown yet, I'm afraid it won't mature enough and rot.
