Description How to Grow Delivery

Challenge yourself to growing your own juicy melons with this Melon Grafted Duo. These two popular varieties will give you a head start with strong plugs equipped with vigorous grafted roots that offer improved resistance to soil pests and diseases.

Melon Grafted Duo includes: 

Watermelon ‘Ingrid’ 1 Jumbo Plug - produces high yields of early maturing oval melons weighing 2-3kg with a high sugar content and good crunchy texture. Fruits have a high resistance to cracking. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 400cm (157").

Melon ‘Anasta’ 1 Postiplug - a French Cantaloupe which is a small variety of melon and best suited to UK growing. Golden skin with green stripes and soft orange flesh which is sweeter and more intensely aromatic than other Cantaloupe melons. Height: 50cm (20”). Spread: 200cm (78”).

Harvest Months

4 Jumbo Plug Plants (KF0086)
2 Jumbo Plug Plants (KF0085)

Pot up your plug plants and protect from frost. Plant in a well-drained spot in full sun, in a greenhouse or polytunnel. Dig in plenty of well-rotted compost or manure. Allow 90cm (3ft) between plants to allow them to ramble across the ground. A hollow sound when tapped indicates that the watermelons are ripe.

Seeds and garden supplies will normally be delivered within the time period stated against each product as detailed above. Plants, bulbs, corms, tubers, shrubs, trees, potatoes, etc. are delivered at the appropriate time for planting or potting on. Delivery times will be stated on the product page above, or in your order acknowledgement page and email.

Orders for packets of seed incur a delivery charge of £2.99.

Orders which include any other products will incur a delivery charge of £6.99.

Where an order includes both packets of seeds and other products, a maximum delivery charge of £7.99 will apply - regardless of the number of items ordered.

Large items may incur a higher delivery charge - this will be displayed in your shopping basket.

Please see our Delivery page for further details, and more information on different charges that may apply to certain destinations.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
