Winter Squash Plants

Squash

Anonymous added on May 10, 2014 | Answered

We are having some trouble with our the leaves on our winter squash. We started the plants indoors about 4 weeks ago. They looked very healthy until recently when we transplanted them into a larger container. The leaves are now starting to dry up, starting on the outside of the leaf and moving towards the stem. Any suggestions? The last day of frost in our area is May 23.

This is normally a sign of either under or over watering. Make sure the drainage is good in the containers and the squash are not sitting in overly wet soil. And make sure that the soil does not dry out. For containers, you will want to water about once a day, twice a day in weather over 80 F.
