Spacing climbers Empty Spacing climbers

Post  vthokie 5/19/2010, 11:30 pm

I know this might seem like a weird question but I would like to know how to space my spuash, zucchini, cantaloupe, etc. In the book, it indicated that I could use less space by using a trellis which I intend to build...my question concerns the placement of the plant in the actual squares. A squash can use 2 squares if it is on a trellis which is what I intend to do. Where exactly do I plant the squash? In the middle of the 2 squares? And, can I plant something else right next to these 2 squares? Thanks!

Spacing climbers Empty Staking Bush Varieties of Squash

Post  alouwomack 5/20/2010, 12:13 pm

vthokie,

You might want to read this previous thread:

https://squarefoot.forumotion.com/general-sfg-talk-f5/squash-vine-or-bush-t341-30.htm?highlight=squash

There are other discussions on how to handle "climbers" . . . don't know what type of zuc & squash you are growing but if they are bush varieties, this thread includes how I've dealt with my straightneck squash with t-posts & so far its working very well.

If you do follow these guidelines, you'll need to consider what is planted around them; the squash will have stems that reach outside of 1 square that could interfere with other plants. (I have trimmed a few lower limbs but it probably isn't good for the squash/pest/disease.) I think it just depends on what growth habits the surrounding plants have. For instance, my cilantro is fairly short and bushy and the black eye peas don't seem to care either way. On the other hand, my dill is not too happy about it and the tomatillo is pretty crunched. (You'll see the pics I posted on the old thread listed above.)

I hope this helps! Let us know what you decide.
