Spaghetti Squash Plants

seedling plants

Anonymous added on October 14, 2014 | Answered

We keep a compost heap that I put all veggie scraps in. Right now there is squash sprouting up. If I transplant it in my greenhouse, will it grow through the fall and winter here in east TX and maybe produce some? I will try anything once. I think it is either spaghetti of butternut squash. Thanks.

    If you have it protected in a greenhouse, there is no reason it should not survive through the winter. It just needs to stay warm and well watered and it will grow just fine. I would recommend putting it in a larger tub. Once they get beyond the seedling stage, they do not like to have their roots disturbed, so you want to make sure it is in a big enough container that it won't outgrow it.
