Zucchini Falling Over...

Post  vjam5555 on 5/26/2011, 4:53 pm

Hi Everyone!

My zucchini plants seem to be doing very well, getting tall (about 2') with big green leaves...and two babies about 3" now! The problem is that the plant keeps tipping. I'm afraid it is going to fall over and uproot itself. A friend keeps insisting that I bury it, but I want to stay true to the 6" of MM. Any suggestions? I'll try to post a pix shortly! Thanks!

I look forward to your photo. Just don't know if the plant needs a stake for stability, or if it is trying to vine a bit.

I am growing a vining variety of zucchini, Black Hawk, so I can get it up in the air and save some space in my SFG.

You can stake your zucchini, and remove all leaves below the fruit. Cleans things up, leaves more room for other plants, and you can see the fruit, so no monster zucchini surprises! affraid

I didn't start mine this way, but, when they tried to completely take over, I staked 'em!
