What size box (raised bed) do I need for a single pumpkin plant?
This is the first year I have put out a garden, which is basically an area 16x12' that is marked off and has various raised beds in it. The wood I am using is 2x8s.
I understand that the vine from a pumpkin plant can get big but how much space do I need to contain the actual plant/roots? I was planning on letting the vines run along the mulch up the aisle between the various container boxes.
This is mostly just for fun and to hopefully grow a pumpkin for our 3 year old.
