Because we don't have the ground space, or a support to grow bird house gourds on, I tried something a little different. I grew them at the base of our peach tree. What a sight. It grew up through the tree then cascaded down. And I have 4 gourds, one really big one. I wish I had a digital camera so you could see this, it's amazing.
My question is this. Do you think I can leave them hanging from the tree over the winter to dry? I think that I've read here that you can dry them outside, but will the vine support them after it dies. I grew gourds once before, but we moved to another state. In my old house I dried them in the attic. No attic or basement here.
