Storm Watch Team Meteorologist Alex Calamia shows you how you can get watermelons blooming in this week's Garden Guide!
Grow your own by starting off with a seed packet - sugar baby watermelons are a compact variety that will start fruiting about a month later and grow well in a container.
When planting, use a high-quality soil and a large container, but start amending it with compound like organic blood meal.
Watermelons are heavy feeders and need extra nutrients.
Then, expect the first fruit by July!
Happy gardening!
