Training Squash Up a Vine

Anonymous added on July 9, 2011 | Answered

My question is about training squash and tomatoes to grow up a vine. We have the trellis all ready to go. Do I need to cut off some of the plant to make it work vertically, or do I just get all of the plant growth to go up the trellis? If I need to cut some off, what is your suggestion on how much and how to do that?

Yes, if you provide a trellis, it will grow up the trellis. You just need to support the fruit. Tying the fruit to the trellis with panty hose works well.
