Default watermelon?

Anyone grown watermelons successfully in the UK? I've got a couple I grew
from seed this year, and am planning to keep them in the greenhouse after
last year's attempt, where the plants just didn't take off all that well
outside.

Anyone got any hints or tips?

They need more heat and sun than we get, but apparently can be grown
reasonably successfully under glass.
