Q. Squash Plants in Container

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

Q. Squash Problems

I would love to find out what to do with my zucchini, yellow, and patty pan squash. The problem is that the middle of the plant, the ‘heart’ of the plant, is like eaten or burnt. It has brown and crunchy leaves, but only in the middle of it. What could it be? Please help me. I live in northen Arizona.

Q. patty pan squash leaves turning yellow and drying out

I just bought a patty pan squash seedling from Home Depot about a week ago. I planted it in a container with Miracle Grow soil and water every day. My leaves are, one by one, slowly wilting and turning yellow and getting brown at the tips. I thought maybe it wasn’t getting enough water, but it is still happening. Help.
