pictures training a bush zucchini up a pole.

Post  thegreatcob on 9/23/2012, 10:19 pm

does any one have series of pictures detailing the process do to training a bush zucchini up a pole,due fact several posters on British garden web site don't believe it is possible and never bother to take picture of it myself.
I remember Mel or someone else detailing the process on web somewhere but have since lost the link.

Well, Cob, I did try, and your welcome. Good luck finding it. As far as I know most summer squashes are bush varieties as opposed to say a pumpkin, that grows 15+foot vines.

Did you have a particular variety in mind?

My "bush" variety zucchini grows just like the one in the video. puts out a long main stem, with fruits growing off to the side. I don't know that I've ever seen a vine type zucchini??

The one I planted this season, thinking it was a bush, ended up being a vining type and spread over 2 boxes and the lawn.....

Camp...I think the vid you posted is the correct one. I'm trying it on my "non vining" zucchini in our garden, and it's working just like in the video...
