I've seen cages on peppers, but I don't know if cages would be tall enough for vines. Maybe you could grow them through the top, then wrap them around the outside of the cage. Just a thought

I've never caged anything but tomatoes and peppers, but I don't see why it wouldn't work. I'd use concrete reinforcing wire 5' tall, 5' long (which makes an 18" diameter cage), plant three or four plants on the inside and let her rip. You'd take up more than one square but would be growing more cukes than on a regular trellis.

I caged my cucmbers last year and trust me when I tell you that you are going to need a trellis. Vines outgrow cages fairly quickly especially cukes.

That makes sense. I wonder-could you cut them back? I like the idea of letting them grow out of the top and then winding them around the outside, couldn't I then keep them that length?Wouldn't that stimulate fruit production (like topping trees)?
