can you plant butternut squash in planters and cover with dirt
I made 4 planters (15" x 5" x 6). I started the seed. Can I plant the containers in the ground and cover them with dirt? Will the squash keep growing down hill? I am talking about butternut.
I'm not sure what you mean about the squash growing downhill, but the concern with growing a plant like squash in containers is using something large enough to allow room for the roots. I don't know if the containers you describe are large enough. Another consideration is watering. Containers buried in the ground are going to be difficult to monitor, and to water.
