Pruning Squash


Anonymous added on July 24, 2015 | Answered

I have been told that cutting off runners after a gourd has formed will make them grow larger and fuller instead of growth going to the vine. Is this true or will pruning them harm them?

While it's okay to prune some, you should only try to remove the growing tips so as not to leave large wounds that may draw squash pests and diseases.
