Growing Gourds in Pots & Birdhouses in Windy Area
I'm new to this forum AND to growing gourds.
1. Can I successfully grow gourds in a large pot? I will have a fence and portable, heavy duty, wooden A-shaped ladder trellises for support as soon as my peas are harvested. I want to use the pots because we have pretty soggy ground conditions in the spring.
2. I want to hang some gourd birdhouses under a roof eave on my husband's shop, but strong winds whistle across our prairie land frequently and I was wondering if folks have trouble with birds rejecting the birdhouses because of the swinging and swaying of the house in the wind.
Any help will be fully appreciated :)
