Container Gardening

✿ Many varieties of summer squash require a lot of space, but some bush varieties can be grown in large containers (see recommended varieties on the other side).

✿ Bush varieties need about 12" of space around them, when growing.

✿ Make sure your container has small holes that allow water to drain from the soil. Otherwise, roots may become waterlogged.
