Gourd Seeds - Gourds are mainly ornamental. An assortment of many varieties can be dried for spectacular fall and winter displays. All gourds are vigorous viners and can grow to 15 ft. Train them along a fence or trellis to save space. The most popular varieties are the mixes - the "Large Ornamental Mix," the "Small Ornamental Mix" and the combination "Large and Small Ornamental Mix." The favorite individual variety is "Bushel," although all individual varieties are indispensable with serious arts-and-crafters.
