Grow Butternut Squash Vertically
We’re in Zone 5b along the front range of the Rockies in Colorado
1
This is a back section of our 2000 sq ft garden & we’re growing squash vertically.
2
Use a potato bag or veggie bag if you don’t have ground or raised bed space.
3
Find the main vine & clip it to a “roller hook”. Suspend it to a support board or trellis above.
4
We used cattle panel and utility hooks to suspend the panel up above.
5
Here’s a close up of the roller hooks. We use these for tomatoes, too.
6
As these beauties grow we’ll sling them in something stretchy & breathable like netting or nylons.
