Melons such as watermelon, cantaloupe, muskmelon, or honeydews all add a wonderful variety to any garden that they are planted in. However, special care needs to be taken when maintaining melons. In large part this is because, despite the relative ease that melons show in growing, most melons are relatively delicate plants. Without the proper care being shown, any gardener that has planted a few melons in their garden shouldn't be surprised to go out one day and see that their crop has disappeared.
Don't be discouraged though, since maintaining melons can be a relatively easy thing to do, if you keep a few simple things in mind. Basically, it is all about the basics. If you focus on providing the proper amount of water, sunlight, and nutrition, and work to keep the pests and ailments away from melons, then you can't go wrong.
