CAN I PLANT BUTTERNUTS NOW (FEB)? (Gardenate replied : It depends on when cold weather starts in your local area. The plants might not have time to develop before the soil is too cold.)

Spring is the best time to sow all your cucurbit family members.

You are talking about butternut pumpkins aren't you. Best to ask in the pumpkin section not the squash. Go to pumpkin enter your climate zone and then check the planting guide.

Butternuts are considered a squash.
