Q.Zucchini on a Trellis

Anonymous added on April 20, 2011 | Answered

Is it possible to grow a zucchini plant up a trellis rather than on the ground? Or can I cut the stems of the zucchini so it doesn’t take up too much space. If I cut back the stems, will it sprout new stems at the root base?

While it is possible to grow them on a trellis, fence, stepladder, etc., you could also choose the compact varieties, which are better suited for smaller areas.
