    If you live in the southern zones, simply plant when the last threat of frost is past. If gourd seeds are planted and it turns cold again, don't fret. The seeds will simply lay dormant until the soil warms up enough for them to sprout, usually around or above 60 degrees. Then you'll see gourds growing all over the place.

    Looks like you live in Ohio. Right now is the time to plant. Make sure they are on a good strong trellis.
