Squash at Wakelyns

New for 2022!

After many years as lead squasher at Wakelyns, Marion Gaze has stepped back and is now our expert behind the scenes advisor.

Janine Parry is now taking the lead. At the end of April, she and partner John planted 4,000 squash seeds for germination in our greenhouse – a new approach for us as we have previously relied on using ‘plugs’ grown elsewhere. We are hoping this will give us more reliable plants at a lower cost; and, of course, it’s fun to do the whole thing here.
