I got a 2 plants at the last week of Urban Oaks' annual seedling sale--but I'm not sure where/how to plant it. One can go in my boyfriend's non-SFG, but do I put both there, or can I grow Zukes in the maybe 2 or 3 squares I have near the back? I'm thinking it'll absolutely need support/trellising--would a tomato cage be enough? Any ideas and suggestions will be most helpful. Thanks!

I planted my zucchini and yellow squash in one square each. They are trained vertically. For insurance, I put them in corner squares, just in case I couldn't get them trellised.

Zucchini do not naturally vine, they just spread out. You have to be careful when transplanting because their roots do not like to be transplanted, I find just being gentle and watering lots until the plant takes off usually all you need to keep it alive.
