vertical growth ?

Post  rgoodman1979 on 5/12/2013, 6:02 pm

I just want to make sure I've got this right, I need trellis for tomatoes, squash, zucchini, cucumbers, peas, is that right? I have bush beans, do I need anything for those? And I have Dwarf Grey Sugar peas, how about those?

For squash and zucchini it depends on the variety of course but I believe most of them are bush types so you can't really trellis them

The only thing I've trellised is peas, beans, cucumbers & tomatoes. My squash & pumpkins had a whole bed to themselves, not SFG's and neither did well. But I've read that some folks put those things in the front rows of their boxes so they can hang and grow over the edge. That's what my pumpkin ended up doing. There's a video out there about growing squash upright that you could probably find if you google it.

My bush beans grew fine without a trellis as I put them 1/sq so they could hold each other up. Very Happy
