I intend to grow both spaghetti and zucchini squash. Do I need to worry about cross-pollination? If so, how far apart do they need to be planted?

Squash may require as much as 500 feet between varieties to prevent cross-pollination. However, you only need to worry about cross-pollination of squash if you save the seeds for planting next year.
