is it possible to grow squash in containers?
I'm interested in growing squash eventually. I don't plan to do so now, as it's too late for me to do so because of where I live. I also don't really have the space to plant any type of squash. Any information acquired from this post is for FUTURE reference.
Also with the varieties of squash I'm growing I plan to use compact/bush varieties of the squash varieties listed below.
The squash I'm interested in eventually growing are:
I would like to know if it's possible to grow the above listed varieties in containers.
If so, then what size container would you need (please specify this information in gallons) to grow each variety listed above (acorn, butternut, zucchini, and yellow/summer squash) in.
The other question I have is, do you have to train the vines of each of the above listed squash to climb a trellis? If so, then do you have to stake the vines of the squash like you would a tomato plant? If you do have to train the vines to climb a trellis and you do have to stake the vines, how would you go about staking the vines and "training" the vines to climb the trellis?
Here are links for the different seed varieties of squash I'm interested in growing:
NOTE ABOUT THE LINKS:I don't know why, but it won't just let you click on the link and then redirect you to their product page via opening a new window. You'll have to copy and paste them manually into your web browser. Once you've done this, press enter and it should redirect to the product pages of these seed varieties.
This is going to seem like a really dumb question, but for the links with the zucchini and summer/yellow squash I would like to grow, they ARE bush/compact varieties correct? I have little experience with growing anything
that vines, and have very little experience with growing anything in the squash family, that's why I'm asking.
