Hello there,just wondering if I can grow watermelon and rockmelon close together. Thanks Garry.

Plants only cross pollinate within their own species. Watermelon (citrullus lanatus) and Rockmelon (cucumis melo) will not cross. Bees can cross pollination and they can travel up to 2 km, this is the (?)

Depends how close - 5-10m away would be OK. I wouldn't do 1-2m apart - cross pollination.
