Squash

Anonymous added on June 25, 2015 | Answered

Can you cut squash vines back or will it keep the plants from producing? My squash leaves and vines are taking over some of my other plants and I was wondering if I could cut them back.

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. This article may help as well: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/squash/should-you-remove-squash-leaves.htm
