When Do Squash Plants Blossom?

Squash prefer soil temperatures above 70 degrees Fahrenheit and full sun exposure. A single squash plant matures to produce both male and female blooms that experience just a single day of fertility with pollination by bees between blossoms. Transplant seedlings or immature plants to the garden plot two weeks after the final frost and expect the first blooms in early summer, depending on weather conditions.
