What size container for chinese bottle?
I have a few seeds I purchased recently for Miniature Chinese Bottle Gourds. I am curious to know what size container might be best for growing these gourds this season in North Carolina. They will be grown on a patio with mostly North Eastern sun.
I would like to avoid large barrels etc... and use ceramic/terracotta planters. Are 18" - 24" diameter planters suitable? Could I use smaller?
I will probably build my own bamboo trellis, but to what height should I make them for these Chinese Bottles? I have read about cutting vines at 10' to make them manageable but might I be able to cut them to a more appealing 4'-6' for the containers?
Thank you for your help in this matter.
