Q.Squash Plants in Container

Anonymous added on June 22, 2011 | Answered

I planted 2 different squashes in a planter and now the plants are getting big and I am wondering what I should do when they sprout and produce. Will they grow down to the ground or will I need to stake? They are yellow squash and patty pan. This is a first for me. I have put them in a fairly shallow planter about 4 feet above ground and concerned that the stems will become to heavy to hold the squash to grow full term.

They normally do well in containers with good drainage and plenty of growing room. They typically do not require any staking. This article will help with growing squash: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/squash/tips-for-growing-squash.htm
