I think I killed my zucchini!!!

Post  Garden_State on 6/5/2010, 5:22 pm

Well, I made a newbie mistake and planted zucchini in an area that was to small. So I had a great idea, lets transplant them into containers! So I made some MM and transplanted the zucchini from the SFG to the containers. Now the plants are all limp and wilting. Probably cut to many roots when I pulled them out of the SFG.

Hopefully the bounce back or I am going to need to find some store bought replacements quick. Not sure I have enough time to start from seed again.

Oh well...live and learn.

It's only the first week of June, so I think you have plenty of time to plant zucchini from seed again. The hotter weather will give it a quick start. That's what I would do!

As a general rule, squash, cukes and pumpkins do not like their roots disturbed, but then I've seen squash plants at the greenhouse, however those roots are confined in the smaller pot, so they probably have a better chance for transplanting.

I agree with Patti that you still have plenty of time! This time last year, I hadn't even put my seeds in the ground yet Smile

My guess is things will turn out just fine! Enjoy your zucchini harvest.

Just got back from my morning stroll from the garden. Looks like the plants might survive. They perked up overnight.
